I’ve just been commissioned for my first photography work, by family for a senior portrait, and I’m freaking out. First thing is it’s a portrait which is probably the thing I am least experienced at and second is it’s a senior portrait which I typically hate because they all look the same and I don’t know what I’ll do to put my own spin on it while not turning it into an art project for me ahead of the family’s desire for just a nice senior portrait.

Anyone done any senior portraits before and what did you do it straight or make it your own?
