As those who follow my senior photography work know, I specialize in fashion-styled photography for senior girls. My senior girl sessions include professional hair & makeup and elaborate styling. They are awesome, but they are really not for the guys. And yet, I get frequent requests from guys who want top-notch senior photos too. So here’s what we do:

Instead of having separate sessions for senior guys, we schedule a photo shoot with the entire family (see my family session details here, or request my family magazine), and we carve out some time during the session to capture some cool shots of our senior guy. This typically works out perfectly— mom & dad get beautiful photo canvases for the wall at home (or a keepsake album), and we knock out our senior photos at the same time. I love it when a plan comes together!

Here is an example of exactly this kind of family session. I met the Greydanus family out at their cottage for updated family photos for their walls and Christmas Cards, and at the same time, Matt handsomed-it-up for the lens.

We’ve had sooo many remarks from this card.  Words like “best ever” … And I sent this Christmas card to everyone!  And Brady was getting his hair cut tonite & I opened his pic you posted on Facebook so the stylist could see the cut he wanted.  She hardly noticed his hair but went on & on about the picture! Thank you, Carrie!
