I know that not every high school senior is excited to get their picture taken. For sure not everyone loves to be in front of the camera. In fact one of my brothers never got senior portraits taken... he is the only one who doesn't have his folio on the bookshelf by the fireplace at my mom's house. BUT - really, you should do it anyway, just to make your mom happy!
I promise I will make it as painless as possible.
I won't pose your hands.
(Unless you are a girl. Then I will, but only a little bit.)
This 2014 senior has it all together - he has plans. He is going to be a lawyer and he came for pictures in a power suit. I think he looks awesome. I also loved the location we went to for sunset pictures (I think he was wishing for someplace a little more desert-ish, but at the time lots of places were closed because of fire danger.)
Anyway, thanks to him for being a super good sport. Your mom thanks you too! I know because I am a mom and I will have to bribe my son when it's time for his senior pictures someday.
Me: "Just read your book under the tree at the park, in your dress clothes, like you always do..." Right?
If you are a senior who doesn't love having their picture taken, I promise to make it short and not tell too many awful jokes. Also if you hate to show your teeth, I won't make you do it. And I won't stare at you with weird eyes or talk non-stop. (I never talk non-stop so that one is easy.) Give me a call and we can talk about a senior session. :)
I love doing sessions at parks like this one, but for lots of other session locations, see this blog page here.
