“I’m so looking forward to getting my senior portraits taken!” said no guy ever.
But seriously, c’mon guys…it’s totally painless and it’s my job to make you look like a stud, not a corny dude in the “thinking man” pose. (which just happened to be Lucas’s go-to “silly” pose! He was quite entertaining throughout our session!)
Chances are, if you’re looking at this blog, you either know Lucas, are a fan of me (yay! thanks!!) or you’re a mom doing photog research for your son’s senior pics. 🙂 If you’re number 3, rest assured: I’m here to help.
I’ll ask what you think your son’s style is, what kind of things are important to him (sports, activities, etc), and then I’ll ask about how he wants to look in his pics.
Lucas is an athlete but didn’t want to be photographed with anything that said so. And that’s fine! His mom identified his style as “Abercrombie but with a shirt on”, and that gave me all the info I needed. I picked the location and we shot the studio shots and the outdoor stuff in less than 2 hours.
