Alex's Senior Pictures

We were really pleased with these!

He wanted some shots with his guitars, so we took five guitars and an AC/DC poster with us. Although they're all good, there are only a couple from this page that I was extremely thrilled with.

On this second page, I really like the first one. It just screams "poster" to me, so we might get it made into a poster for the guitar room in the basement. I have to find out the cost first...but when you're spending close to a thousand dollars on senior pictures, what difference does it make? It's only money. (Completely said with tongue in cheek.)

He looks so grown up in some of first I could hardly believe it was our little boy!

I really liked the ones with him sitting against the tree. We have a big outside one of Joey, matted and framed, on our mantle, and we'll probably get one of these to match it.

The photographer said that very few of his senior portraits clients bring a suit, but I insisted on it. To me, that's a classic portrait. The photographer said that most high school guys don't have a suit, and that's probably true. Both Joey and Alex got a suit a couple of years ago when our niece got married. Fortunately, Alex's still fit. A classic black suit never goes out of style, so hopefully he's pretty close to being done growing and it will fit for years to come. The photographer suggested the look in the first two shots on this page. I like the second one a LOT. It looks like he'd been playing in a club all night, and just about everyone's gone, and the employees are cleaning up, but he's so into the music that he just can't put the guitar down. A couple of these pictures look like the typical realtor pose though, and I just can't get into those.
We're going to have a hard time narrowing down our choices...there are so many great ones to pick from!

(There's another new post right below this one.)

Alex's Senior Pictures are wonderful! I can't get over how much Alex looks like Ted!! Just think how much fun it was for me with twins!! It was over six hours just to take the pictures separate and together of course!! Then the fun really started when we had to choose!! Gook Luck :)

Those pictures are great! Matt had some of his senior pictures taken with his guitar too and I loved how they turned out.

Tell "Big Al" they look great, and I think he needs a few more guitars!

Your old friend!

Wow! I had a senior photo taken for the yearbook and that was it. None of my kids said anything about senior photos and I wish I had gotten some then. Just snapshots on Graduation Day. Your boys are blessed. I never had that much money to spend on them IF they had said something.
