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.

I have known his family for years through church. He didn’t have a lot of specific ideas that he wanted for his pictures, but he knew he wanted to include his dog in some of them.

He likes fishing and hanging out with his friends.

I have this really cool abandon building that I sometimes like to take seniors to. It matched up with Austin’s laid back, cool vibe perfectly.

This is Bobby, a 2017 senior from Parkersburg South High School. Bobby is one of the three guys I had as senior reps this year.

The day before his session, he casually texts me to let me know he’s broken his wrist. I was sure he would cancel, but no! He showed up for his session with a smile and was ready to work the camera.

He did the whole session and never complained once. His mom and I had even planned some neat basketball shots of him palming the basketball, which again I assumed we wouldn’t be able to do… but he sure proved me wrong and totally rocked the shot.

Congratulations, Bobby! You’re going to do great things in life, and I’m so happy I got to document this time if your life.

Lindsay is on her school’s rowing team and wears her colors with pride.

Can you believe Lindsay waited until Spring to schedule her senior session? She wasn’t even sure she wanted her photos done. I can’t understand it – she’s so photogenic! Thanks Lindsay for a great session. You were a blast to work with!
