I do not consider myself a "senior portrait photographer," but when I am asked to shoot a senior I embrace the opportunity as fully as I would any other project. Essentially I stick to the ideology that I do when I shoot fashion to capture that person maybe in a way they never have before. The chemistry between I and the person being shot can be strained at different points during the shoot; therefore, the moments we spend together can ultimately result in catastrophe or genuine emotion. Which is why I try to not even think about the fact we're shooting merely in commemoration of their accomplishment, but to treat them like I would a professional model as to bring out that feeling inside that they can really like being a subject for a camera.
It may all seem like a bunch of nonsense, but I've had success with this technique. So without further a do, here are some shots from two different sets. One with Alexa Baldwin, and the other with Mason Barber. Enjoy!
