I was recently asked to do a photo session for 3 Allen Eagle seniors who needed pictures for a football program. Wow! I was pretty excited about this adventure, as it was something new. I’ve photographed many seniors before, but never a group of them together, and never specifically about football. A photo session with 3 senior football players…what could possibly go wrong?
Absolutely nothing! What a fun photo session. I had the privilege of meeting Haden, Maddox, and Andrew, 3 wonderfully polite, funny and respectful seniors on the Allen Eagle football team. As a mom of a middle school boy in the Allen school system, I was so happy to see the kind of young men that are graduating from Allen Highschool.
These 3 boys were delightful, well-spoken, and happy to take these photos because they knew the pictures would make their moms happy. These boys were the perfect combination of serious and silly, and always willing to strike a pose and smile for me and my camera.
And after each series of pictures, there was always some confusion as to whether or not they were supposed to be smiling or looking at me with their tough guy “football glare.” Seems like at least one of them would crack up at some point during the “football glare” poses… It was so much fun!
With each photo session, I come away with new ideas for my own children’s senior sessions that will be here before I know it. And this little group of friends photo session is now added to my list. What wonderful memories we captured with Haden, Maddox and Andrew. Their personalities came shining through in the pictures, and I could tell what a special bond they have with each other.
It was so fun hanging out with them during our session, and I’m excited to finally know some of the Allen Eagle football players. The games will be so much more fun to watch this season now that I have three new friends to cheer on!
Many thanks to Haden, Maddox, and Andrew for putting up with me and my camera with such positive attitudes! And many thanks to their parents for trusting me with this project. I’m looking forward to watching all 3 of them take over the football field, hopefully soon!
