Meet Tyler – one of my Senior Reps from PHS. Tyler’s mom had mentioned to me that he may have “raccoon eyes” from wearing his sunglasses so much. I didn’t really think much of it, I’m used to editing out tan lines all the time ~ no big deal.
When we started the session, I snapped a few pictures of Tyler and he was still wearing the glasses. Again, no big deal, lots of seniors like to have fun props or accessories for their pictures. After a few good shots, I asked if he wanted to take them off for a few. He told me that he couldn’t that his eyes are actually hyper sensitive to the sunlight, and he wears them all the time. Can you imagine!?! I always say you want your senior pictures to be a good representation of YOU during this time in your life, so we left them on for most of the pictures.
He was a good sport about taking them off for some too though. I just made sure we did those in the shade, and I moved through the poses quickly so it didn’t bother his eyes too much.
You have to admit he is one handsome young man ~ with or without the glasses.
Tyler also has a very sweet ride, so we made sure we drove down to Point Park to get some shots of him with it.
He was one of the sweetest guys I’ve worked with. Afterwards I told his mom, if my boys turn out half as kind as he is, I would be proud.
