i love senior photo shoots. love love love them! it’s a chance to capture the essence of someone at the prime of their life–when everything is blooming and taking shape. i enjoy getting the chance to hang out and get to know the client a bit. walking and talking allows us both to relax and just be ourselves. honest and fun conversations unfold and honest and real smiles and poses result.
this was one of my favorite sessions. this young man has high hopes for the NHL and is working very hard toward the goal with a strong promise of achieving that goal. he was confident and relaxed, mature and level headed. but what i loved most about our session was the few times i got to see his boyish smile hidden beneath that grown up exterior. the innocence is still visible in his eyes. the camera exposed the promise and the sweet soul within this young man and i enjoyed every moment of our two hours together.
i love these two strong images juxtaposed against the baby blue brick wall like adulthood mixed with childhood. i see a bright future for this young man. i can’t wait to hear about his dreams coming true. i just know they will.
