This post is for the moms of young men about to wrap up their junior year of high school, specifically those young men who are NOT very excited about senior portraits! I have some ideas for you.
I knew I would love this session, because I have worked with this family many times and I always look forward to our time together. It was hard for me to narrow down a selection of images to share just in this blog post, so imagine how my clients must feel when they see them all at once. It would be a shame and a waste to let these images sit on a hard drive never to be enjoyed in real life.
April vacation is over and school is winding down for the season. Soon your juniors will enter the summer before their SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL! Where did the time go? I guess they were right when they said the days were long, but the years fast. So very fast.
For the past few years I have a participated in a few different career days at local high schools. While I gave up teaching years ago, I do look forward to these few hours. Typically, I am on a panel with a few other artists. We each share a glimpse into our careers and then have time for questions. There is always a student in the room who not only wishes to pursue a career as an artist, but wishes to do so independently as an entrepreneur. To these students, and to all students actually, I always encourage them to treat everyone they come across with kindness.
If you are a junior in high school it’s time to schedule your senior portraits if you haven’t already done so. Do yourself a favor and forgo the stress of waiting until the last minute. Most schools will suggest a local photographer for your portraits, and if that works for you, GREAT!
Parents are always incredibly grateful for the images we create together during these follow up sessions. It’s a time that allows them to slow down and truly celebrate the bond they are creating with their baby.
When mom contacted me about this session, she wasn’t concerned with waiting for perfect weather or venturing out to a picturesque location. Her main concern was scheduling the session around their oldest daughter’s visit from England. This meant the session was to take place in the dead of winter. We planned to use their beautiful home as our backdrop, and also got quite lucky the day of our session together as we were blessed with mild temps and snow covered yard.
