Senior portraits Sycamore Illinois

SMP senior portraits in Sycamore Illinois help tell the story of your senior year for parents + seniors to treasure for years. Oh, grandparents LOVE this memory-moment too!

I have a son, I get it!

Senior guys are not over the moon to see me + my camera, but when it’s over I always get a, “That wasn’t painful at all,” or “Thanks for not torturing me.”

I’m here to bring more fun guys + snacks, I can always get a teenager with snacks.

Some rendition of those comments follow a guy session. And that’s as good as saying, “That was my best day EVER!” {Yeah, I know that’s a stretch. But a girls gotta dream}

This senior guy I’m posting today was a true country boy, with a little rock-n-roll edge. He also knew exactly what he wanted to include: his truck, guitar, and commemorative rifle that celebrates his journey to becoming an Eagle Scout.

If you want your senior portraits in Sycamore Illinois you’ll have some good country roads to use your truck, car, or motorcycle as a prop!

While I was adjusting my lighting a few times during this session, I asked Dominic to sit and play for awhile, and I never expected to hear Stairway to Heaven coming from his strings!

Not too shabby!

As promised:: Three tips for senior guys

I always want to make sure every senior who books with me gets the session that tells their senior story. Here’s a few ways to do that:

1/ Bring at least one prop that helps showcase your personality

I love when a senior includes things like their musical instruments and I get to record just what makes them special. Things like a special hat showing off a favorite team, an athletic jersey, or letterman jacket will bring individuality to your senior portraits from high school.

2/ Take care of your skin and health before your shoot {well always really}

I know that you have about a million things going during your senior year, like deadlines, scholarship applications and college tours. But, try to get good rest for the days leading up to your session. A well-rested you looks much better in your portraits. A good moisturizer also helps you look bright, relaxed and hydrated (yep, moisturizer is not just for the girls!}

3/ Get your hair cut and shave::

Aim for a fresh hair cut before your session if you have short hair. Cut it at least 7-10 days before the shoot. Clean shaven is always a nice addition too if that’s your style.
