Classy Nautical Crew Senior Boy Style

Classy Nautical Crew Senior Boy Style – YES, this was a session that I have been excited about for a few years.  I met this handsome fella’s mom a few years ago and was praying that I would have the chance to capture his senior portrait session.  This guy is part of a local rowing team, Parati Rowing Club in The Woodlands, Texas.

As our time finally came to fruition, we had a perfect plan for a classy, nautical crew location and wardrobe plan in place.  Fresh, modern and classic was the perfect way to showcase this senior boy.  He is clean cut, has a wicked wit and incredibly charming.  Such an incredible young man.

We knew that we wanted some waterfront, but that there was more to his style than just his dedication to rowing.  A local park was our perfect spot.  Were were able to capture his charming preppy style with a stunning golden light backdrop.  I can not tell you how much we laughed, but he did his best at channeling his inner model look.

I love when a senior guy will let loose and explore different expressions that really show the many facets to themselves.  Big laughs to piercing eyes….it all tells their story.

Then, it was on to the boats at the Parati boathouse.  We wanted touches of his passion, but not for it to overwhelm.  He has loads of on the water race photos from his state championship season.  Understated crew was our goal.  We achieved it with some moody lighting and powerful expressions.

Big congrats are in line, too.  He is heading off to continue his rowing career at Marrietta College as a student athlete next year.  Incredible things to come….so excited to follow along through his next chapter.
