When I got the email asking if I did senior portraits, I was a little hesitant. I'm totally a person that likes it in their comfort zone. I know that a good kick in the pants is always worth it, though. I decided to go for it. At least I wouldn't have to chase the kids down like most of my shoots.
I've done a total of three senior sessions this year and they all went just like this one. I talked to much in the beginning. The teenagers probably thought I was nuts. Each and every session, I can think of the time when I got them to break and relax. It usually involved a look and grin that something mom was saying was totally wrong. Most likely when the conversation involved the opposite sex or a sibling. After a bit, I think those teenagers might've actually started liking me a bit. Now if only I can accomplish the same thing when my kids get older.
This graduating senior was so nice, sweet and honest. He's a good kid. Not going to lie. My mind goes to the gigantic spider webs he ran into while we were walking down the path. They were huge. I had a good chuckle when he told his mom that she was supposed to be looking out for them for him. I hope my baby boy always wants my help looking out for spider webs.
