Tag Archives: Senior Guys

I go back so far with Nathan’s parents that when I first met them, Nathan’s dad looked like… Nathan! But despite the weird time-warp, it was super fun to be a part of this guy’s senior year! Good luck at GVSU and as our future Russian Ambassador!

I’ve known Tyler’s family for years, so it was such a pleasure to meet up in downtown Ada, Michigan for his senior portrait session. Congratulations on your graduation from Grand Rapids Christian High School — you’re on your way! Thanks for letting me help commemorate your senior year!

I’ve photographed Frankie’s family for years, and I still remember him from his elementary school years. Can’t believe you’re all grown up and customizing sweet cars now! What a cool kid… Congratulations on your graduation from Grand Rapids Christian High School!

 

 

While I typically photograph senior girls, occasionally I have the fun opportunity to work with the guys. Congratulations, Max, on your graduation from Forest Hills Central High School! You’re going to do fantastic next fall in engineering at University of Michigan!

I had the pleasure of spending a sunny afternoon with Matthew and his family at a marina in Holland Michigan for a Family Memories photo session. In between family shots, we were able to capture a few senior pictures for Matthew. What a handsome guy— and bright and talented too!

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.
