Shouldn’t graduation portraits be more than just a nice smile or a new outfit? I think so. Typically the senior portrait sessions here in the studio start out with what I call “The Grandma Wall” poses. You know the ones – the ladies are gently resting a cheek on their ever so delicately folded hands and the gentlemen are looking very serious as they rest their chins on a rugged fist. Thank goodness today’s Grandmas are way cooler and want to see something more exciting!
I encourage all the young adults that come to me for their senior portraits to bring in items that really help to tell their story. I want their proof booklets and finished portraits to unquestionably show who they are at this time in their lives. It is my hope that they will someday look back at these photographs and remember that they were the bees knees. (Translation: awesome, cool, hip, swagger, Gucci, fizzy)
