Sebastian and his mom Michele met up with me for a senior pictures shoot recently, starting at Avondale High School.
I do sympathize with a young man modeling for his senior pictures, while the football team is in plain sight. Yes, a couple of comments were yelled over, but all in good spirits I’m happy to report.
Film star looks – that was what I said as I started to photograph Sebastian. He is able to pull off the bright smile cherished by grandparents, then immediately go into a smoldering look certain to melt some hearts. Some seniors struggle with being comfortable in front of the camera, but that was not the case with Sebastian. If it was, he dealt with it very well.
A great personality goes a long way, and I perceived Sebastian to be a pretty decent young man. We headed off into a wooded area leaving mom behind, and as we worked on a few images, he was a pleasure to be around. That always makes my job a little easier, and more fun.
Michele was also easy to be around. Sometime parents can be a little controlling in these situations (sorry parents!!!) but she wasn’t. It was a pleasure to work on these senior pictures with them both.
