Just Do It ...Zoolander that is! | High School Senior Boys Photographer

High School senior boy with vintage lacrosse stick_0157.jpg

Piggybacking on my earlier post about the difference in photographing High School Seniors boys versus the girls -- I just had to share this!  Issaquah High School Senior Jacob and I had a really cool shoot complete with some Abercrombie inspired images of him with his vintage lacross stick and one hell of a cool brick & stucco wall.  Me, his sister and his lovely Mom were headed back to the studio when this ultra cool 2016 Senior says... "Hey, can I try just one more thing...I'd like to do Zoolander blue steel?  "Um -- YEAH you can!" :D  For your viewing pleasure... please Enjoy!

The One Moment I Always Wait For | Guy Senior Pictures

There is a moment during every senior pictures session with high school boys that I wait for ...and when it happens I'm always hopeful that I'm actually holding my camera (preferably in some very good light :D  )  It's the occasion that it hits the boys that they are really having a good time.  I can see the instance when the tide turns and even thought they may not say it -- it's written all over their face.   You probably think I'm going to say that I see "Joy"... but NO, it's "Relief" -- as in... "this didn't suck as much as I thought!"  Haha.  I'm kidding... but really -- we are well aware that most of our fellas have not grown up dreaming of their moment in the spotlight ...not only is it understandable... it's quite natural.  My very favorite suggestion for any of our guys is to bring Mom, Dad or a buddy to the photo shoot.  Our "More the Merrier" philosophy is the secret weapon for getting relaxed expressions and natural smiles.  Oh and speaking of smiles... this shot of Trent from Overlake High School is just one of the many awesome portraits from his senior shoot...Mom made him laugh.  ;-)

Guy Style | Senior Picture Ideas | Newport High School Class of 2016

We photograph a lot of senior guys and looking sharp is as important for the fellas as it is for the gals so we thought it would be helpful to do another senior spotlight on this popular topic.  Newport High School Class of 2016 Senior Ryan is showcasing an All-American look -- navy sweater layered over a white t-shirt paired with a dark wash denim -- instant classic.    The key to this look by the way is dressing head to toe... remembering to bring a belt and coordinating shoes for the most flexibility & overall variety.  We love that he brought his football for some action shots -- bonus points for that!

Baseball inspired senior pictures for guys | Bonney Lake High School Senior Boy Portraits

Cool Guy Senior Pictures | Bad @ss Bass Guitar | Seattle Senior Photographer

Senior boy with bass guitar in tuxedo_Studio B Portraits Trevor is a talented musician with an understated cool that is further confirmed when you find out that he plays the bass guitar. (Let's be honest...bass, drums, sax...all inherently swag worthy instruments even before you play a note, right?)  I have to laugh at the twisted tale of shenanigans that it took to get to these great senior portraits. It began with forgetting the tux at home...hit mid stride with a wardrobe malfunction in the button department and ultimately landed us right here - looking NICE!  An excellent exclamation point on the "It's not how you start, it's how you finish" axiom.   Like what you see?

My favorite kind of senior guy | Cedar Park Christian High School

Chad is literally my very favorite type of guy to photograph!  The Cedar Park Christian High School Senior arrived SO prepared...I love that!  Varied clothing? - check.  Props that represent his interests? - Got'em.  Amazing Attitiude? - Oh Yeah.  Lovely Mom to ride shot gun? Priceless :-)  (On this last point...let me just say how much I appreciate when the fellas bring Mom, a friend, any cohort that allows for them to relax and let their personality really shine...this is a fun experience and it's cool to share it with folks that care about you)  One of my very favorite moments from Chad's session is this one directly above where he started cracking up and covered his face...we're not bringing world peace...but we are having a good time this senior season!

Great Guy Senior Pictures | Nathaniel for Skyline High School

African American guy senior pictures in shorts and white shirt_Studio B Portraits_0361 Honestly I just don't understand where the myth about senior boys came from -- trust me -- they absolutely want a fabulous senior pictures experience every bit as much as the gals! Admittedly...they may not be earmarking the pages of Vogue and practicing poses in the mirror...but they do want to look natural, relaxed and amazing for this huge milestone.  Mission accomplished for Skyline High School's Nathaniel, Class of 2015 :-)  He also had a fantastic studio portrait with his football that I just have to share with ready -- you are going to be smiling at the screen when you see this one!


All Smiles with Redmond High School 2015 Senior Boy

Redmond-High-School-Senior-Pictures_Studio-B-Portraits Redmond High School Class of 2015 Senior Nick is a total Renaissance see him here and you think -- All American kid (shoot, it even says as much on his t-shirt) but he's got a wide range of talent and interests that we also were able to showcase during his senior photo shoot.  He brought his entire drum set-up for one of his studio looks and while he was still assembling it I was able to capture this candid behind the scenes moment that really says it best.
