Last weekend I had the pleasure of a senior portrait session with a young man from our Church. Jeff's mom challenged me to get a genuine smile out of him, evidently he doesn't give them frequently when in front of the camera. It took a little while but eventually we found that smile, and it's quite lovely.
These are a few of my favorites:
I also had the added challenge of glasses. Not only the glare and reflections but his glasses tinted in the sunlight hiding his eyes. He agreed to take them off for a some shots without glasses and revealed a pair of STUNNING green eyes.
I love shooting in old Elk Grove. So many gritty backgrounds to up the "cool" element for a very cool guy.
I enjoyed strolling along and chit-chatting with Jeff. He's got a bright future and a wonderful family supporting him. Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to get to know you and capture this special time in your life.
