Senior Guys + The Memories They Give Their Mom’s

A Fall season filled with senior guys doesn’t normally happen. I typically have three to four senior guys each Fall. The calendar is full with guy style!

All 5-foot-3-inches of me should buy a travel step-stool for these sessions, because they are WAY TALLER than me + my camera!

Most senior guys don’t hate having senior portraits, but they aren’t necessarily planning their session for weeks in advance either.

They do however love Mom + having THIS memory is something they’re willing do for her.

I say it all the time, but this really is the Year of Lasts!

Having senior portraits is a big deal for both Mom + Senior.  We take hundreds, if not thousands of photos of the baby + toddler years. They are so cute and cuddly little boys.

But there is a huge gap between those toddler years and senior year. True, there are family portraits over the years, but in the craziness of senior year we forget this year is the end.

We’re excited about college visits and getting THE acceptance letter. There is stress over ACT scores. Excitement to finally be the senior class and ready to move onto the next chapter too.

A lot of things will change next Fall.

Stopping to get this moment they’re in right now becomes special in telling that final chapter of school at home.

Brett’s a busy senior guy but he stopped to fit in his senior moment for Mom. Due to his varsity soccer schedule, rainy days + a few unpredictable events, it took us 3 times to get his senior portraits captured.

But we did it and they now have them FOREVER!

His Mom is so funny! Each time we rescheduled she kept saying the words from Florida Georgia Line, “Meant to be” :0

It’s MEANT TO BE! Brett is one respectful, super tall, cool senior guy, and I’m grateful Mom asked me to be a part of his senior year moment!

“If it’s meant to be, then baby it’s meant to be!”
