Congratulations to Sam Baierl as he graduates from Wauwatosa West High School!
I can see a future in leadership or politics with Sam. Not only is he a smart kid, he is the first ever student representative on Wauwatosa School Board! Maybe I unknowingly took senior portraits for our future governor? Hmm…
Sam wasn’t too sure about the whole senior photo thing, but we ended up having a blast. We may have had a little too much fun. See: Sam with trash cans. See me being relieved: Sam’s mom has a good sense of humor. (PHEW.)
You don’t need to be an experienced fashion model to have a successful portrait session. Sam is an athlete and a scholar and had never thought twice about “posing”, his “good side” or even “what do I do with my hands”.
All these questions and more are addressed hands on (lol) during your session. When you hire me, I consider this part of my job. I will coach, guide and tutor you as we go through your session. The best part (read: most entertaining) is that I usually try to mirror my subject so they can see what I want them to do. So many times I’ll be holding the camera with a hand on my hip, foot up on a wall and huge smile on my face. If it helps, why not?
Check out Sam’s photos and notice all the different looks - he makes it look so easy, doesn’t he? And if you ask him, I’ll bet he says it WAS easy. (whispers: Thanks Sam, I’ll pay you later.)
Congrats Sam! I’ll be watching for you in the news… best wishes on your bright future!
