Let's be honest for a moment. Guys hate having they're picture taken. Especially guys in high school. Girls are easy because there's a fashionista side to getting their portraits done but boys typically could care less. My main goal when shooting a guy's senior photos (other than awesome photos) is to make them quick, efficient & fun. Depending on the person & parent's permission, I'll even offer to let them bring a good buddy along provided that's a good buddy that can make them laugh and lighten things up. Morgan (or Iggy as his Dad referred to him) didn't need a buddy. His Dad was his buddy and helped me along with getting a few chuckles, smiles and most importantly, making some awesome photos in an efficient & fun senior session.
(photographer's update: Pleased to announce that Morgan was just accepted to & will be attending the University of Pittsburgh)
