Senior Photos and Grandpa Eli’s Corvette

(As senior photographers, we are asked frequently if bringing a car to a senior photoshoot is okay. Not only is okay, it’s encouraged! And when you’ve got a car that is attached to somebody you love, it’s encouraged even more.)

This is John with a 1967 Chevy Corvette. 

John traveled from California to have his Senior pictures taken in Albuquerque with this blue beauty.

The Corvette is owned by John’s grandfather, Grandpa Eli. 

Grandpa Eli has restored the Corvette three times, put over 275,000 miles on her original engine and has crossed the country behind her wheel on multiple occasions. 

But as much as Grandpa Eli loves his Corvette, he loves the boy standing in front of it even more.
