Matthew Hedrick

Another LCA senior in the books! Matthew was a breeze to photograph because of his laidback nature and ability to go with the flow. After doing many seniors these last two years, I’ve come to realize that the guys tend to just follow directions and have very little input as to their own images (this isn’t really shocking!). For this senior session we ventured to the Flour Mill in McKinney and took advantage of the rustic architecture around us. This location is fun because there are so many nooks and crannies just around the corner – you just have to be willing to search for them.

What I didn’t realize until his mom, Jenn, and I started chatting, was that they go to the same church as Chase and I…I guess that’s a result of going to a larger church. I always enjoy finding some sort of connection with each client, and besides the fact that we have mutual connections through the school, finding out we belong to the same church body was an exciting part of the conversation for me.

As we approached the halfway point of the session, Matthew started to feel more comfortable, which was great because I wanted to capture a laugh or two while photographing him (see last image). Those are always my favorite shots because the person is most at ease and being themselves. Sometimes, those shots of laughter are the ones we look back at and say “That is SO them!”

And I’ll have to admit, when I can get someone to laugh while photographing them it gives me a slight boost of confidence knowing they actually found me funny. Or dorky. Either way…I don’t care.
