At the risk of possibly embarrassing him, I probably shouldn’t say this. But I’m going to anyway: I’ve known Corbin since he was ohhhhh….. about 7 years old. And I’m not sure that fact really hit me until I started processing these photos. AND SUDDENLY FELT WAY OLD.
That admission out of the way, let me just say that I love the Bell family. I have known Corbin’s older brother, Justin, since high school. Earlier this summer, I photographed the AMAZING wedding of his sister, Ashley. So when Ashley called me a few months ago and asked if I’d be up for taking Corbin’s senior photos, there was no other answer but “Of course!”
What I didn’t expect over the course of this session was to start out seeing Corbin as the kid I remembered who, somewhere during the editing process, became a man. AND A HOT ONE AT THAT. Corbin, I hope you enjoy the rest of your senior year. Thanks for being so accomodating on this shoot, for being cool with your mom and sister tagging along, and for making my job easy :) Folks, if I wouldn’t know better myself, I’d say some of these shots are ready for a men’s magazine. GQ anybody? :)

Corbin is an athlete at my alma mater, Woodlan High School. So we started out with some classic letter jacket shots that I just love (But Corbin, remember what Ashley told you: Letter jackets are best left at home your freshman year of college :) )
We ventured into downtown Fort Wayne for the remainder of our shoot and this next series of photos are some of my favorite I’ve shot all year. Guys sometimes have a hard time feeling comfortable in front of the camera, but Corbin was like an old pro. I love the mood of this first one ….
To the Woodlan ladies of the Class of 2010, I say: Wholesome and good looking, no?
Wow. Wow. Wow. This one might be my favorite.
I don’t know if it’s all the Esquires I’ve been reading (yes, I enjoy men’s magazines – actually more than most ‘zines for the ladies), but I TOTALLY feel like these are just ready for a photo spread inside its pages.
Corbin, I promise you if you make a wallet of this next photo, every gal you give it to will hang it up in her locker :) (remember doing that?!)
Thanks again to the Bell family for a wonderful evening and for treating me to Coney Island after the shoot! You guys are the best!
