I think it’s safe to say that shooting a senior session for a guy is MUCH different from when it’s done for a girl. Girls are fun because they bring a fierce desire to be beautiful in their images, giving smeyes (that’s code for smiling with the eyes for all you non-Tyra Banks watchin’ folks out there) and bringing with them a carload of clothing options, shoes and enough accessories to start their own jewelry boutique. Guys are the complete opposite. They bring with them the one pair of jeans and shoes they are already wearing and, if you’re lucky, they’ll change their shirt for you. That may or may not require a lot of coaxing and a promise that, “this is almost over.”
With that said, guys are chill. They make for a really easy-going and laughable session. For Matthew, this was no exception. I should start a business sheerly for the purpose of selling outtakes from sessions – family members would kill for the kind of blackmail I have once or thrice had on my hard drive. For fear of embarrassing him by saying too much or too little, I’ll simply state that we had a good time. He’s a cool kid and I think he’s going to be a professional at having a good time while in college. I’ll pray for his parents, that’s for sure. 🙂
Congratulations on your graduation, Matthew!
love (cool kids),
