In mid-August, I had the opportunity to work on a senior portrait session for an old family friend, a young man named Austin that I happened to babysit when he was two years old. (Enter here the obligatory statement about how time sure does fly, and oh my, look how he's grown up!) During the shoot, I thought it would be funny to remind Austin that I used to change his diapers. Unsurprisingly, he wasn't amused. =P
Austin was really great to work with. We chose Lincoln's Railyard and Haymarket for a more masculine, urban, and casual environment that fit Austin's style. Even more exciting than his model-worthy style was that he was genuinely engaged in his shoot—he tried out his own posing ideas, offered feedback on the images, and patiently followed direction.
The fresh, casual quality of the final products shown here really speak to his level of participation and made his shoot relaxed and fun.
Good luck in your senior year, Austin!
