Thank you Leslie, Smithville HS Track Head Coach, for all her assistance on photographing the track team this year!  This is the 1st time in 3 years we have been able to photograph the track team outdoors (weather was not in our favor the past 3 years).  We also had a brand new track to photograph on!  Cool!  Again, thank you to all the track athletes, coaches, and parents!  Have a great season!

Smithville High Class of 2018 Seniors - 4/3/18

  • Published April 27th, 2018 by rudys

This makes approximately the 27th class I have had the privilege of photographing, and with much sadness, it will be my last one!  I will be Semi-Retiring from school contracts this year.  However, we will still be heavily involved in Studio, Event, Youth Sports, and Commercial Photography!  I just had to say that to clarify that I’m not completely retiring. Back to the Class of 2018.  We wish all the seniors the very best with their future goals!  I almost forgot, we also did a group photograph of the K-12 Seniors.  They are the ones that have been together from Kindergarten to 12th grade!
