Location: Marietta square, Georgia
Having a son, I’ve noticed that guys tend to get the short end of the stick. The toy aisles for girls far out number the aisles for boys. Girls get cute dresses, skirts, hats, belts, tank tops, vests, matching this and that…while boys are stuck with jeans and tee shirts. Don’t get me started on shoes…my girls both have a closet full of shoes, while my son only has a couple of pairs.
Photography seems to be the same. Oftentimes, I see lots of senior portraits of beautiful girls on my Facebook newsfeed. I’ve heard it said that girls are far easier to photograph than guys. That doesn’t ever seem to be the case for me. On a wedding day, it’s usually the guys who strike the GQ poses, with a little prompting. 🙂
When I knew that I was going to shoot Robert’s senior portrait session, I was excited. I have known Robert since he was a sophomore; I was his English teacher at the time. He came into my classroom eager, and FULL of opinions. He always could make me laugh. He hasn’t changed. He is still eager to get his hands on all that life has for him, still FULL of opinions, most of them good, and yes, he still can make me laugh. We laughed lots running around the Marietta square last week.
I tackled Robert’s senior session, knowing that he had a lot to offer. He brought his larger-than-life personality to the table…he was all in, and so was I.
