Ok, have I mentioned how much I love photographing seniors?! Well, I do.........I really, really do!
The senior year of high school is such an exciting time in every teenager's life and senior portraits have come such a long way! When I was a senior, the only options we had were those cheesy studio shots with big numbers, plastic plants, and mirrors and some of you know exactly what i'm talking about!!! And now, well, these young adults get to express themselves in their senior session and we get to create images that reflect who they really are at this time in their lives and I think that is pretty freakin' awesome! Self expression for the win!!!
For this handsome gent's session, we decided to start in my studio because he had a couple of ideas in mind for cool shots that required some dramatic lighting that I knew would be easy to achieve in the studio. Thomas loves photography and the fact that he came to his session with a killer attitude and an open mind just made it that much easier to get the shot and I'd say he nailed it!
After we wrapped up in the studio, we headed outdoors which is my favorite place to be!
And then Thomas did a quick outfit change and we headed to the beach! Well, as close to the beach as you can get in Memphis. i will just go ahead and say that this was my favorite set of images from the session. He was completely relaxed and immediately got rid of his shoes and climbed onto the tree. The images have an "island life" vibe that looks great on Thomas! And yes, just stating the obvious here, he's pretty easy on the eyes!
Thomas plays water polo for Arlington High so we finished up his session at the pool where his team practices. When his mom presented this idea to me, I was all about it! I'm always up for something different and had a blast shooting these!!!
It's a great big world out there Thomas and I'm excited to see where you go next! I have zero doubts that you will do great things:)
Congratulations to Thomas Scott ~ Class of 2018
