Jaerik --- A Very Handsome High School Senior



I had the privilege of photographing a young man named Jaerik  (that's like Erik but with a J in front) a few weeks ago.  He was a lot of fun to work with.

I always have such a great time photographing High School Seniors.  It's such an important photo shoot for them.  For many, it's the first time they've had a 'real' photography session.

They are sometimes jittery and nervous but are almost always game for just about anything and they are still young and uninhibited.

Jaerik is a fun loving and relaxed kind of guy so working with him was pretty 'chillax' as my teenaged son would say.  He's a musician, particularly fond of guitar and so it was important to him to include his instrument in a number of the shots.

As it turned out, I think the interaction of him and his 'baby' was what ended up giving us the very best shots.

At any rate, I thought I'd share a few of them with you.  Enjoy!












And Jaerik's favorite....??? Yeah, that was the first one, the rock star pose!

Oh, and my tip for doing Senior portrait's well.  Be silly, laugh, be yourself.  They will love you for being real.  And be sure and ask them to let their goofy out!

It was fun Jaerik, call me when you're a Senior in College!
