Nate, Class of 2018 Senior | Benilde-St. Margaret's High School | MN Senior Photographer

Introducing Nate, Class of 2018 Senior from Benilde-St. Margaret's (BSM) High School!


Nate plays hockey for BSM, and was Captain of the 2017-18 BSM Boys' Varsity Hockey team

Some pretty cool things have happened for Nate during his senior year, including wrapping up his final year of high school hockey with the BSM Red Knights including being named All Metro West Conference, and earned Best Defense Award. In addition, Nate was also a candidate for the 2018 Reed Larson Award. Nate will be carrying on his defensive play and will continue on with the Philadelphia Rebels NAHL Junior hockey team. [Photographer's note: I am especially looking forward to Nate's Rebels season, as he will meet up with my son with New Jersey Titans sometime during their 2018-19 season! It will be a fun continuum of their hockey careers and friendship beyond high school.]

During the off-season of hockey (if there IS an off-season!), you will find Nate hanging out with his friends (especially on Lake Minnetonka in the summer), playing XBOX, or, even out fishing.


Here's the 411 on Nate:

How would your closest friends describe you: Fun, active, outgoing and kind.

What are some things that nobody knows about you?
1. I'm allergic to grass
2. I've lived in California

What is your favorite candy or snack? Jersey Mikes or DQ

What in spires you? Not being good enough - I always want to be better.

What is one message you could leave with the underclassmen? Freshman grades matter! Take it seriously!

Here are some fun pics from Nate's senior session with me! I tell you what, for a guy who didn't care too much to have his photo taken, he sure had a great session! Thank you for hanging out with me (and your mom) the day of your shoot, Nate! An awesome senior shoot! Check it out!

Well, Nate, as your senior year draws to a close as a Red Knight, I wanted to tell you that it was my honor to work with you for your senior portraits! I couldn't have chosen a greater group of friends for Joey to have, and to see all of you grow up the past few years went by so fast. You all turned into fine young men and I am looking forward to great things happening for you in your future!

I wish you an exciting season this coming winter, and I hope to catch a few photos of you on the ice with the Rebels! Speaking of photos, it has been a blast to take part in documenting both your high school senior photos, and taking hockey action shots of you the past 3 years as a Red Knight, and getting to know your family better.
