I had a great evening at the arboretum with Ethan. The weather was warm, but thankfully not too hot and the lighting was wonderful. Ethan's mother mentioned he was not exactly jumping for joy over a photo shoot. But despite him not being super enthused, he handled the session with flying colors. I really enjoyed working with him--he was such a nice, pleasant young man and agreeable to whatever I suggested! He also ended up being quite photogenic, as you can see, too! It was hard to decide which photos to feature in this blog post! There were all terrific. I think he did a fabulous job putting outfits together to give a nice variety of looks. His mom mentioned he was a casual kid, but I think he looks quite snazzy in all his choices. I always advise seniors to dress in something they are comfortable in that they really like and represents who they are in this short burst of time in their lives. Though casual, Ethan looked very put together and handsome! If a suit and tie look is something a senior would enjoy--go for it! But you can also have a wonderful variety with more everyday clothes. And I have to say, I especially love the pink hoodie ones! A nice pop of color among all the greens of the arboretum!
Ethan plays saxophone in marching band and is currently doing a summer internship with Wooster City Schools technology department. He would like to study computer science after he graduates. I wish him all the best his senior year and appreciate being a part of it! It was great having him on the other side of the camera. Ethan, you were awesome to photograph and I'm so glad you made your mom happy by having senior portraits done! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to capture what you were like at this stage of your life and I hope you and your family enjoy these photos for years to come!
