The overall feel of the session. Caleb pulled of the GQ look so well and we had so much fun! I was Caleb’s Camp Counselor when he was just in Kindergarten. It was such a pleasure to get to know him as a young man.

What do you want this session to convey about this senior and about your senior photography style?
My style is southern, organic, and timeless but that doesn’t mean it can’t be combined with a clients vision. Caleb wanted urban and GQ. I think we were able to combine the two styles beautifully together.

What is one tip you can share with other photographers regarding photographing seniors?
It is all in the posing. I have a workflow sheet that I keep in my back pocket with all my ideas written down. It is easy to forget the small ideas you thought off once you get started and the southern heat kicks in.
