Senior Portraits

Patrick Senior Shoot

Hey, I get it. Guys hate getting their photos taken. They thinks it's going to be lame and drawn out and just tiresome. When I shoot guy's senior photos, I keep them simple but provide excellent range. If you notice, the photos below show excellent variation but were all take in less than 25 minutes at the Waverly Community House. The gym shot was done with one off camera flash positioned to the left with an umbrella. The headshot was done inside using only natural window light and it looks like to was done in a hi-end studio. The golf attire shot was done outside of course, strictly natural light. All photos are slightly edited but not far from the original images. 

Remember, when it comes to senior photos, family photos or any photo for that matter, it's about quality not quantity. I'd rather provide my clients with a handful of AMAZING prints that are timeless than 50 average mini-session images any day. And thankfully, Steven Serge Photography clients recognize that. 

Don't forget, I still no longer charge session fees up front. Pay nothing, see your photos, purchase what you love (not just what you like).

Catie's Abington Heights Senior Portraits

Let's be realistic. Most seniors in high school (girls & guys) don't have legitimate modeling experience in front of a camera or a professional photographer. There's nothing wrong with that, it's simply a coming of age process. But this is also precisely why most  senior shoots look like the same pose & fake smile over and over and over again minus a different tree to stand next to. The personality of your hired photographer is just as essential as the personality of your senior being photographed. The connection between the client & photog is crucial. If it's awkward, the photos will look awkward. If it's uncomfortable, the photos will show the same.  I'm not claiming to be a professional stand-up comedian by any means, but if your photographer evokes the same emotion and personal interaction as wet sock, your photos will suffer. Getting a person to open up, laugh a little and gesture naturally in front of the lens is as much of an art form as the actual photography itself. Precisely why all of Catie's photos look natural, genuine and most importantly, worth every penny.
