Studio Senior Portraits – Saranac, MI

With one of the few remaining indoor photography spaces remaining, we like to make sure we do it right.  Studio portraits are an important piece to the whole package we offer.  Its not hard to take a person outside and photograph them under a tree, add a little photoshop and call it senior portraits.  Studio portraits using professional lighting, backgrounds, and correct posing is a lost art.  Have we mastered it, never…  It is always improving and changing so we change and improve along with it.  Studio sessions are available with all our Senior portrait packages.

Traditional Guy- Senior Portraits Grand Rapids

Traditional Guy- Senior Portraits Grand Rapids

This Lowell High School senior guy really was an easy session today.  If only every senior guy would smile easily and pose naturally and comfortably.  We kept things pretty simple and traditional.  Our goal was to make his images unique to him, but display well next to his brother and sisters.  Here are a couple cool ones from the session.

Many guys don’t think is cool or fun to get their senior portraits, but Modern Photographics will put an end to that.  Our studio makes its comfortable for any guy to get his senior portraits taken.  We don’t coo over  you, or make you pose like a girl.  We laugh, talk sports, talk games, talk about cars, or whatever it takes to talk about what the guy wants to talk about.  I had to have my senior portraits taken twice so I understand what it takes to be a guy’s photographer.

Tips to keep guys comfortable

1.  Be yourself allowing them to be themselves – Don’t be fake, the guys will see right through you

2.  Treat them like they are your buddy, not like a little kid

3.  Pose them like guys.  Guys usually don’t have grace, so don’t ask them to pose them like a girl, once they feel that they are posed like a girl, they are goners.

4.  Build trust.

Video Game Guy Senior Portraits – Lowell, Michigan

Cameron is the Video Game Kid.  I have had the pleasure of knowing his mom and dad for a few years now, and was blessed to photograph Cameron.  Parents are always worried when they come in about their boys.  They don’t like to have their photo taken.  He is shy.  Cameron was like everyone of these guys when he arrived.  He started out reserved and camera shy, but within minutes was lively and having fun.  Smiles come easy when the guys are having fun and not trapped in the studio.

Cameron you rocked your session!
