Posing & Prop Ideas for Senior Pictures for Guys

This is an International Award Winning Image I created recently for a high school senior guy. His mom told me that he was a singer SO I recommended she find an ole school “Elvis Presley” 1950’s type of microphone. That microphone just has style. Add a suit and we are golden!

I wanted to show the emotion and nerves a young man might feel before the curtain rises up.

They absolutely loved this senior picture featuring a cool microphone and the emotion of a moment.
