A Boy, his Dog, his Truck, and one Big Boy
For Senior Pictures outdoors, the fall season with the beautiful gold and red leaves that we have here in Central Illinois is as gorgeous as it gets, and September and October are ideal.
Who says that boys cannot plan Senior Pictures? Even with a little help from a girlfriend, a sister or even mom, we are always here to help.
It was one of those perfect October days that we set up to photograph Corey for his Senior Portraits. On the list of Corey’s requests were his truck, and bringing your wheels is popular with not only many boys but some of the senior girls as well. Also popular with Senior Pictures for both senior boys and senior girls is bringing your dog, cat or your horse if you have one. Corey, however, also had something else in mind to include in addition to having his Senior Pictures with all of those. Of course, I did not find out until later.
So we meet up at the park, Corey, myself, his truck, and his mom (just to handle the puppy dog, of course). We were all cool and good to go. We began by taking some Senior Portraits of Corey in different locations, trees, on the ground and by a bridge. In between various spots and backgrounds, I had Corey change into some of the different outfits that he brought along. After taking a good number of Senior Portraits of Corey, we have mom bring over his dog to pose for a few. With a medium to large size dog, the outdoors seems to be more natural of a location, and we had no problems getting some nice Senior Portraits with Corey and his dog, a handsome Siberian Husky.
Then we move to photographing Corey with his gleaming bright red truck, including a few with his dog in his truck as well. It was a really good Senior Portrait Session.
Then, Corey tells me what he was really hoping to have. Corey had asked his uncle (his favorite uncle perhaps?) to bring his “Big Boy” to the park for some of his Senior Photographs. What’s a “Big Boy” I asked in my naivete, is it a Harley, is it like a Harley? No, I find out, a “Big Boy” is this completely custom built motorcycle that is built by one specialty shop. After waiting a little bit near the end of Corey’s session, here comes his uncle, riding his Big Boy. Corey was in Senior Heaven, and I was incredibly impressed with this AWESOME bike! No wonder Corey wanted his Senior Pictures on the Big Boy! This bike both sounded and looked incredible. It is in a league of it’s own.
Capturing the favorites last, we photographed Corey in several spots with the Big Boy, and of course on the Big Boy. Just look at one of the Senior Portraits that we took with it. I am so thankful that I remembered to photograph a couple of Senior Pictures of Corey and his uncle with the Big Boy. It sure made Corey’s day. Mine too.
