I photographed way more guys this year than I normally do. I think it's AWESOME! I love, love, love when guys want senior pictures! (or when their moms talk them into it! lol) It's so fun to see the relationship of a boy and his momma, and being a mom of two younger boys myself, it helps me to know that there is a good chance mine will be just as sweet, caring, and endearing with me some day. Allow me to introduce you to Allen.
I have to admit I am slightly partial to redheads. I am not sure why, but I have always enjoyed their personalities - especially the boys. There is something about those freckles though...
I loved watching him play his guitar.
After a couple of outfits at the Austin capitol, we headed over to one of my favorite parks for some nature shots. Allen loves being outdoors, so this was the perfect spot for his senior photos. We captured several outfits - including his Aggie maroon, his Cedar Park High School letterman, and of course, Hawaiian shirts and a baseball cap. Allen played football for Cedar Park, so we made sure to get some senior pics representing that as well.
I love it when high school seniors want photos in contrasting locations. It's fun to do senior sessions downtown and also in a park. Or combining urban senior photos with a water session. It really helps to create an album of images that is diverse and personal to the senior's personality. Photographing a senior in their favorite places creates a fantastic memory. And best of all, I love it when mom jumps in for a couple of photos with her senior. That makes the whole thing even more special.
Thanks Allen for trusting me with your senior photos! It was a pleasure serving you.
