Senior Photo Spotlight: Ben

Below are some highlights from a recent senior session.  Ben is a car guy and baseball player.  He loves his mustang, so photographing him with his car was definitely on their photo wish list.  The “car shot” looks great against Historic Oakview’s barn.  I love this park on the east side of Raleigh because of the variety of backgrounds that you can find here.  Side note for photographers, you need a permit to shoot here, which is easy to obtain from their visitor center.

Like many seniors, Ben wasn’t too excited for his photo session.  I normally get senior portrait inquiries from moms, but this senior session was totally FOR MOM.  Ben was just along for the ride!  We still managed to get some great photos of him.  He does a mean “blue steel” don’t you think?

To make a session more comfortable for the senior, I always ask what sort of setting would reflect their personality and interests.  For example, Ben is an outdoorsy person, so shooting on a historic farm was a good option for him.  For someone who is artsy and is drawn to city life, I might suggest an urban setting.  I also chat with seniors throughout the session to get to know them better and help them feel more at ease.
