As a boy mom myself, I wondered what the landscape was like for senior photo inspiration for guys ... and their mamas!
Here's what I found!
A MOTHER'S LOVE CAN AND SHOULD BE CAPTURED IN SENIOR PICTURES
Taking senior pictures is the latest reminder of the irony of parenthood.
Yet another milestone you are looking forward to and your teen boy may be dreading!
Your family will treasure the images forever - but he might rather pretend that senior pictures aren’t a thing.
However, giving your guy a chance to pose with all of the items that made his childhood and adolescence special will establish a bond of nostalgia between you both.
Here’s a few senior picture ideas for guys that you can tryout with your boy for his senior photo session:
Mother son photoshoot ideas
This photo session from Lisa Marie Photography captured the essence of the mother-son relationship PERFECTLY.
Please tell me if you agree - and please share your photos with me if you do something similar! These would make must-have photos for your child's senior collage!
I can hardly take the emotions of this one.
As the mother of an only son, who is also an only child, I can only imagine the day when Asher looks back at me for the last time.
Before he leaves for college. Or before he gets married.
I will miss him so much!
2. Looking back at mom - this gave me goosebumps!
But I will treasure the memories and moments we have had together. And my heart breaks with yours as this bittersweet moment happens in your life.
Because at the end of the day, if we do our jobs right, we will raise confident young men who will take the final glance back before stepping into a bright future.
But, in this moment, our hearts will simultaneously break and celebrate. Another tear-jerker that I would love to include in your custom jersey number collage!

4. Silly hug shot with guys and their moms
There comes a time when our boys get shy about hugs from their mamas. But we know and they know there is nothing like a hug from mom.
Because at the end of the day, no one will love them unconditionally like their mother.
Here's an idea on how to capture that dichotomy on film (or rather, in digital form.) Another wonderful option for you to include in your collage and put on the wall for mom's pictures collection!

5. And just to reiterate its importance: You and Your Senior Athlete.

I wanted to give you a bonus tip: when taking pictures, one great way to relax is to use photo props.
Senior photo props give your son something else to focus on besides the camera.
