What a beautiful High School Senior! I particularly love to be able to capture such a special time in someone’s life. Graduation from High School and Senior Pictures are huge moments in our lives. I know as I look back, it doesn’t seem as momentous as it did then, but when you’re 18 and looking forward to the rest of your life, Needless to say, it can be a hard time for mom and dad, I can’t even imagine what it’ll be like when my girls reach the age where they’re ready to leave my nest (I’m hoping it just never happens). Ultimately, time passes and the best we can do is to capture this momentous time in their lives with high quality portrait photography. Why is it so important? Well, in the coming years, the only son or daughter you’re going to see (most likely) is the one hanging on your wall. That’s hard for me to admit as I know it’s an inevitability for me as well, but it’s the truth in most cases. I know there are a lot of senior pictures done that (not unlike newborn pictures) are heavily accented with props. It’s not that I’m necessarily against props, but as an Omaha photographer I want to, first and foremost, focus on the subject. I know as a parent, I’m not nearly as interested in seeing my child posed on top of his or her car as much as I’m wanting to see a good quality image of my child at that point in their life. In some ways, it seems that props end up being a distraction and a focal point in a photograph, rather than the focus being on the subject. If you need or know anyone who’s in need of High School Senior Pictures in Omaha, don’t hesitate to call (or have them call) me at 402-916-9300 so we can discuss the student’s needs! I look forward to hearing from you.
