Did you see my snapchat story with this amazing senior guy? (By the way, you’ll find all of my behind the scenes of all senior photo sessions on snapchat, @terifode)
We photographed Maverick’s older brother, Kannon, 2 years ago, and his older sister, Brielle, 5 years ago. 2016 is the year of the Maverick. And boy did he make a splash. Literally.
Maverick has talent and a personality that captures you the moment you meet him. At first, I thought we were going to be photographing his amazing style (which, by the way, is completely spot-on with fashion trends) and his great personality. But as the session progressed, he kept surprising us with so much more than that, as amazing as that would have been!
The setting was gorgeous. His family home and property were the setting, complete with an infinity pool set against a gorgeous pond and gorgeous grounds.
I told him he reminded me of Matthew Mcconaughey, and he immediately transformed into the Matthew of the infamous Lincoln MKX commercial! Yes, I captured it on Snapchat.
Next, he told us he’d love to include his school Mascot theme. No problem. But we weren’t prepared for the awesomeness that he revealed! He came out in a pirate costume (very Jack Sparrow-ish)holding a camera drone, riding a hover board. YES. It was awesome. That was after we did a few skate-board shots.
Not that all of that wasn’t a photographer’s dream to capture, but I about died when he said “I think it would be pretty cool to jump into the pool…with my tux.” What?! Yes please! Of course I captured a few before the big splash too. He made the executive decision to ask mom for forgiveness about the tux instead of permission. No matter. She laughed and loved it when she found out.
Here are a few of our favorites. Meet Jack Sparrow. I mean Matthew. I mean MAVERICK!
