So when I book a senior, I always send a “Get to Know You” form to fill out. It is especially important for the kids I didn’t get a chance to meet with ahead of time so I can get a feel for what they are like and what they want their senior portraits to be.
With the guys, I am guessing 90% of the time, moms fill it out. No big deal. But with Ben, I knew he had filled it out himself, and had a fabulous sense of humor.
“If you could go on a road trip with anyone, dead or aline, who would it be and why?”
FDR- he’s really interesting and influential, and we could use the disable parking spots everywhere.
“My favorite clothing store is…”
Do you really expect a guy to have an answer for this?
and my favorite…
“How would you like to be portrayed in your senior portraits?”
I want to be portrayed naturally, not wondering in 25 years why I was in some weird pose for my senior pictures.
This is my kind of kid ;)
Ben is finishing up his senior year at Grayslake Central High School and will go on to do amazing things I am sure…and always with a sense of humor.
