Here’s another senior guy that I’ve known for such a long time! When I was a senior in high school, Mike’s dad was brought on as the football coach at Lutheran Northwest, so Mike and his 2 brothers would be out on the field “helping” dad coach! All these years later, I was thrilled when his mom contacted me to do his senior portraits! Mike’s dad was now that athletic director which meant we got the whole football field to ourselves that day!
I could tell Mike was a bit apprehensive about having pictures taken at first, but by the end of his session he was striking poses without me even having to tell him what to do! I was pleasantly surprised that his grandmother tagged along with us, she was so sweet! The best part of the day was watching Mike’s mom attempt to fold my reflector! I just so happened to catch it on video: Reflector Fail.
After the session, Mike said he actually enjoyed his session and it didn’t last as long as he thought it would! My goal with the guys is always to make sure they don’t end up hating me afterwards!!
