Jace had the privilege of having two different sessions; the first focused on his favorite hobbies (firefighting for Fairfax FD & bowling) and during his second session we worked on his nicer outfits! It was so fun both times we worked with Jace (and his entire family)! Jace has quite the village of love and support surrounding him, he's a lucky kid!
His first session was definitely toasty, especially for him! Can you imagine getting in full firefighter gear on in upper 80* weather and then trying to look nice for pictures? Of course Jace handled it like a champ and ALWAYS had a smile on his face! His second session we were definitely blessed with better weather! He is SUCH a gentleman too, always offering to help at every turn! Just thinking of him makes me smile!
Let's learn a little more about Jace from his Senior Spotlight, shall we?
Me: What are your major accomplishments your senior year? What are you most proud of?
Jace: "I am proud of the good grades I worked hard to achieve in school. I'm also proud of our bowling team's 4th consecutive trip to State in February, along with my season average of 206, bowling anchor for most of our meets and tournaments."
Me: I know the year isn't quite over just yet; do you have any big plans to finish out the year? Is there something you are looking forward to before graduation?
Jace: "I hope I can finish out my Firefighter I certification. Classes at Kirkwood twice per week started in early November and were to finish in April."
Me: Were you involved in any sports or extra curricular activities? If yes, please list them below.
Jace: "Yes, the Prairie High School Bowling team. Go Hawks!
I'm also a volunteer firefighter for our town. FFD Proud!"
Me: What's your plan for this summer?
Jace: "I plan to work and continue to save money for college. I'd like to get some fishing in as well as a few games of bowling."
Me: What does the future have in store for you? Have you already picked your school? If so, what major? (Or explain whatever future plans you have below).
Jace: "I plan to attend Kirkwood in the fall, enrolled in their Advanced Welding Technologies. I will also continue my involvement with the fire department."
Me: What are your absolute favorite images/sets from your senior session?
Jace: "I like my firefighter pics the best, of course. 😉 My mom says I look the happiest and most satisfied in them."
And now let's look back at Jace's Senior Sessions!
This kid pulls off a black & white really well!
Can't you tell he's just so in his element here?
A BIG, HUGE THANK YOU to the Merta Family for making the last year (almost two years??) so fun! It has been such a blessing to get to know all of you! And I can't wait until it's Teagan's turn to see what we come up for his session!
Good luck to you Jace, as you continue on past high school. There are so many possibilities out there and I know you will chase them!
