What makes a great senior photography session?
Of course the purpose is to capture nice photos of the graduate. The icing on the cake is when the senior and their family decide to incorporate a hobby, interest, or talent into the session! These photo sessions really portray the graduating senior’s personality! Images involving interests, add dimension to the photos, allowing the viewer to experience and envision the teen’s talents.
This session took place at Lake Grapevine. I met the family as they launched their bass fishing boating into the water. We used several great locations to capture action “fishing” shots. Then we ventured onto land for more classic style portraits.
It is my job as the photographer to capture the teen’s interests. This is achieved by having conversations with both the teen and the parents in the planning phase, as well as during the session. It is a partnership. The client relies on my photo knowledge, while I rely on the clients’ expertise in the specific area being photographed.
Photographing a member of a fishing team was a first for me! I always welcome new ideas and ventures. I wonder what will be next!
