Senior Boy Photography in Denver

I like to believe that one of the things that differentiates me from many of the other senior photographers in Denver, is that I am not focused mainly on photographing girls.  I think there is a perception that girls are the only ones who care about senior photos.   I say that’s nonsense.  The senior photo experience is something that boys and girls both want, it’s a time-honored tradition and a ritual of growing up.  And honestly, I’ve met just as many reluctant girls as boys.  Being a teenager is a self-conscious experience, and almost everyone goes through a period of feeling uncomfortable in the spotlight.

As the mother of two boys myself, I’m naturally not a big fan of the idea that boys don’t need or want senior photography.  I want photos of my sons just as much as any other parent wants photos of their daughters.  I want to honor this time of transition and moving into adulthood as much as other parents.  I want to hold onto my sons’ youth and hang it on my walls just as much as any other parent.  With a sample size of one family (mine), I believe that other parents of boys feel much as we do.

Senior photography is a way of celebrating and marking the end of childhood.  We commemorate that transition with beautiful portraits before kids leave home for college or jobs or other adventures.  I always talk to kids about this and why it’s so important to us parents.  I think it’s special and important to kids, too.  Even kids who grew up in a household of annual family portraits, having all the attention on your for this special hour is a unique experience.  It’s a time that we are honoring that kid in a very individualized event.

    Nice expressions and beautiful light Willy! I agree, high school senior portraits mark a turning point in a child’s life as they sail into adulthood.
