Meet Nate Ray – Graduating Senior at Desert Vista High School! Nate is a musician/drummer, and he also happens to be one of my son Colin’s closest friends! Friends would describe Nate as friendly, honest and likeable. He LOVES music and is truly a talented musician! In fact, just a plug for Nate, he plays in a band by the name of “Once Upon A Time”, and they are doing well! With over 6500 LIKES on facebook and regular playing gigs, they have some great momentum going for them right now!
In fact, they have several songs on iTunes right now that you can check out at this link: Once Upon a Time.

Nate is their drummer, and as you can tell from our shoot, we had some fun taking some photos in a downtown Phoenix urban location – a perfect backdrop for a musician! He brought along his sweet new snare drum! And I had fun trying to get some good shots of him with it!
Nate’s idea of a perfect day is doing anything with his friends. He spent lots of his time in high school in the drum line playing for the Desert Vista Marching Band and taking percussion classes. Nate says these are some of his favorite high school memories. When asked about the one thing he can’t live without…. his answer was music! (of course)
But for the record, he will NOT miss MATH CLASS! That sounds about right!
Drumming is his passion. His dream job would be working for a custom drum company someday! But who knows… maybe with his band, he’s might be on the path to fame and fortune as a musician!
It can happen! Wherever the path leads Nate, I know he’ll be successful! I do believe his future is bright!
Nate, I’m honored to have gotten to take your senior photos and I wish you the very best always!
Here are some photos from our session:
