Meet Ryan. My first introduction to Ryan was through an email his mother sent me stating that Ryan was a ‘reluctant young man’ when it came to senior portraits. I laughed at loud at that description because it honestly encapsulates a good 75% of all high school senior guys. While girls are typically over the moon at the chance to have their portraits taken professionally, most guys simply don’t care all that much. No worries, I’ve worked with many young men such as Ryan in the past and I love watching how their initial hesitancy turns into relaxation (and even pleasure!) at having their photograph taken. I think that’s because I keep my sessions so laid back and pressure free. Any worries about having to ‘perform’ or be ‘stiff and cheesy’ simply melt away.
I really enjoyed photographing Ryan. He’s a calm, easy-going kind of guy with a charming smile and dimples to die for! A senior at Heritage High School, Ryan has his sights set on joining the Air Force ROTC and studying aerospace engineering during his college years. I have no doubt he will accomplish just that!
