I had the privilege to shoot Noah’s senior portraits last Monday night. Noah and his mom met me at Paris Mountain State Park and walked around to find the perfect spot. I love all the textures and buildings that Paris Mountain State Park offers, not to mention gorgeous light this particular evening.

Noah’s pictures are actually the first official senior portraits that I’ve done. I shot some portraits of my sister-in-law, Rachel, after she graduated from grad school this past spring. But as far as high school senior portraits go, these were my first. I also have to mention that Noah was the first guy I’ve shot, the first guy that wasn’t involved in a wedding that is. I was excited and at times a little stumped on how to pose a guy and not make him look girly. I’m used to all the girly poses, but I think Noah handled it well and even came up with a pose or two of his own.
