I had so much fun taking Harlan’s Desert Vista High School Senior Portraits in the nick of time before the Coronavirus outbreak. Harlan is my husband’s cousin and truthfully, I had only seen him a few times prior to the session and didn’t know much about it. It was great having the chance to get to know him a little better in a more intimate environment since normally, we are always around a bunch of family.
Harlan is a rapper who goes by the stage name, Young Seize. I haven’t seen him perform yet, but I have seen some of his videos and live performances, and he is extremely talented. I’m excited for him and his pursuance of the music industry.
For his senior portraits, his mom wanted him to have a classic, timeless look but also feel like himself. We did a few smiling portraits, but I also wanted to incorporate some offbeat posing here and there as well. I think his portraits are a little fresh in mood to make a good rapper portrait, but I wanted him to have something he would cherish later in life.
Congrats on your upcoming graduation, Harlan! Best of luck in life and in chasing your dreams!
