It's Throwback Thursday and it's graduation season! It's the perfect time to dig out a few old senior head shots. I can't think of a better way to celebrate the Class of 2016 than to abuse two great friends like Lori Nordstrom and Roberto Valenzuela. Here you go - classic portraits of two of the industry's favorite artists.
There's something to be said about the quality of my stash of old images. I honestly couldn't decide what I was going to share today, but when I saw the size of Lori's hair, compounded by the photographer redefining the meaning of a "hair light", I knew it had to be shared. And Roberto, as he looks straight down the lens barrel, honestly doesn't look old enough to have been a senior!
Great friendships are what this industry is all about and Throwback Thursday is just one more excuse to have some fun. It's also an incredible marketing tool. Use Throwback Thursday as an excuse for fun content in your own blog and remind your target audience about the importance of capturing memories through the eyes of a professional photographer.
Happy Throwback Thursday! And, to Lori and Roberto, the devil made me do it!
