I think I enjoy seniors so much because it takes me back to a very exciting time of my life – getting ready to go off to college. That was truly an unforgettable time. I guess it’s fitting that my zeal (and maybe a tad bit of envy) has heightened my love for photographing high school seniors. Connecting with them is just good for my soul and…fun! They are finding themselves and their confidence, and I love being able to capture that behind camera.
Traditionally, we think of senior shots as posed shots. I like to think of myself as more of a director, however, rather than a “poser.” I want to see movement and personality and candidness, and it’s my job to help direct the seniors to do these things. It is work! But it is worth it. And I love the end result.
