I love doing senior photography (though I say that about every type of photography – except weddings. Don’t ask me to do a wedding).
In particular, I like doing shoots with senior boys. Most are still somewhat in the throws of puberty, so they’re often still kind of awkward and insecure, and I like to use their senior photography session as a way to give them some photos that make them feel more masculine.
Senior photography is often one of the trickier types of photography to do, mainly because the senior often wants to come across as “cool” and more adult, while the parents still want to see a sweet high schooler. I try to find a happy medium between the two.
When it came to Seth’s senior photography session here, I went for a “Dean Winchester meets GQ” feel. Seth has something of a man-crush on Dean Winchester from the Supernatural series, and when he showed up for his session in casual clothes and a dark leather jacket (Part of Dean Winchester’s signature style), I knew that Seth wanted to have that “tough guy” look.
However, going for a full Supernatural-style photo shoot would come across as a little too grungy for a senior session, so I softened the grunge with a bit of a high-fashion look.
Overall, I’m really pleased with how they turned out and I believe that they turned out like . So were Seth and his parents (which is what really matters anyway, right?).
So, what do you think of the photos from Seth’s shoot? Tell me in the comments below!
