About CJ Wilkes Photography

Capturing Your Dance In The Rain is such a thrill and joy to me. Being able to look back on those special times through beautiful artistic imagery makes it a worthwhile challenge.
Learning to Dance in the Rain has been very easy for me. I am drawn to Water & Life! The exciting part for me is to teach you to enjoy your moment in the dance as I capture it from behind my camera.
Looking forward to Capturing Your Dance In The Rain

High School Senior ~ Simon

When doing a High School Senior Session, my goal is to catch not just some amazing images but really capture the student’s personality, talents, likes.  I think you can really feel what an awesome person Simon is in this session.  It was a pleasure so Thank you for the opportunity Simon to be your High School Senior photographer!

One of his hobbies is canoeing!  How cool is that?  So early in the AM we headed down to the beach.  Of coarse I was game!!! – it’s WATER!  So glad we went too.  The beach was gorgeous in the early morning light.

Simon has the most awesome eyes and beautiful red hair.  I just had to have some pictures of him with a sea green shirt.


I have to laugh every time I see this image.  We were on the way back toward the house when I spotted a ton of ivy!  It was gorgeous.  So I asked Simon to go stand near the stump.  When we went over and noticed there was a hole in the stump.  He had mentioned there could be racoons in there.  I had not seen anything like it – it was just so cool, so I am glad we stopped.

One of Simon’s great loves is gardening and cooking directly from his own garden.  He has his own green house so of coarse I had to have him show it all to me :)


He had cabbage and tomatoes.  His garden was GORGEOUS and the food from it too!

In the rock garden Simon got his guitar out and played a few tunes.  Seriously multi talented.   A young man who you can see why his mom is so proud.  She should be.  Respectful and has a good head on his shoulders.

Simon has a sweet ride that he is or has just sold.  We were so glad to get him with his baby before he let it go.

What a neat kid with so much to offer the world!  Best wishes this year – your Senior Year of High School Simon!!!
