I've been shooting senior portrait sessions in Downtown Opelika a LOT lately, which is absolutely fine by me! Historic Downtown Opelika has so many great photo spots, rustic buildings, colored walls, beautiful large churches, courtyards and so much more. Because of all that variety, even though several of my blog posts are featuring seniors downtown, none of these sessions turn out looking quite the same.
Today I'm featuring another awesome senior guy named Steven! Like many guys, when we started our session, Steven was pretty clearly there as an awesome cooperative son, trying to make his mom happy by smiling for a few photos...but wasn't super enthusiastic about the idea of being the center of attention for photos. My favorite part of this session though was when we switched to his lacrosse gear, and everybody started to relax a little more and Steven's personality and confidence started to come through. 100% this is why I love when people bring things they love to sessions....whether that's a jersey, sports equipment, dance shoes, skateboards, you name it. You are always more "you" when you love what you do! Enjoy these photos from Steven's session!
