I must admit that when it comes to doing a photoshoot for High school senior students, girls outnumber boys by a large margin. However from time to time i will get a young man dragged against its will, just trying to be nice to his mom !!
Whereas girls often like to pose, switch outfits, enjoy the creative process of the shoot, it may take a little more persuasion and a different approach to have the boys get involved.
In both cases, I love to see the evolution of the shoot, the subjects coming out of their shell and having a direct input during the session. I find those photos particularly creative and fun to shoot.
In this case, Connor was no different from many students before him, he was a little reserved at first, not sure of what to expect and eventually got more comfortable as the day progressed. It was also special since I had done pictures at the same location with his sister few years back!
At the end of the day, we made some nice images and everyone had a great time !
