Not super into the traditional senior photos where you’re smiling at the camera surrounded by a field of flowers? Let’s take a different approach instead, passion-focused senior photos! For Gunnar’s senior session, we wanted to show off his skills and love for the sport of baseball. To do this we took his senior session out to the baseball diamond.
Gunnar’s Senior Photo Session
To prep for Gunnar’s senior photo session, we took some time to get to know each other. I make sure to schedule a call with each of my seniors prior to their session to finalize details and so we can get to know a bit about each other. This was my first entirely passion focused senior session. I was very excited to see what Gunnar had in mind for his senior session focused around his love for baseball.
For Gunnar’s baseball senior session we decided there was no better place to take his photos than the baseball diamond. He spent the majority of his high school career there. It was fun to hear about his memories and mishaps. Gunnar wanted a mix of posed photos as well as candid photos. Our goal was to document his natural happy and excited energy along with the intensity and passion he has for the sport of baseball.
I LOVE when seniors come into their senior session with inspiration for their photos! It’s so much fun to work together and collaborate to put together photos that they feel good and look good in. When prepping for Gunnar’s senior session I made sure to do some research on how to pose him and how to incorporate his baseball gear without it looking cheesy or childish. One of my FAVORITE sites for image inspiration is Pinterest as well as photo hashtags on Instagram.
