When Tiffany Clark, owner of Chaos and Clark Photography, went to pick up her cousin for his senior photo session, she wasn't expecting anything crazy.
"During one of my normal senior sessions, if it's a girl, they usually wear a dress or jeans with their favorite shirt. For the boys, it's usually khakis or jeans with a button-down," Clark said. "Then I take them out to a location, like a field or the beach or somewhere, and then I use prompts to get them to interact so I can take their pictures."
Evan Dennison got in the car wearing sweatpants and carrying a bag. Clark asked him where his clothes were. Dennison assured her they were in his bag and he would change once they got to their location.
And he did change: into a bathrobe.
"I was at this family-gathering type thing and it (the idea) just popped in my head and I thought it would be really funny," Dennison said. "I told everyone about it, but no believed me."
95 weird bathrobe pictures
Clark was not on board.
"I was like, 'This is not what your mom sent you. I know it isn't,' " Clark said. " And he's like, 'No, this is what I'm wearing.' "
After a brief argument, Clark decided to take the photos.
"He's stubborn. He absolutely refused to do anything except for in his bathrobe. I didn't want to do it, and I couldn't stop laughing," Clark said. "When I get home, I had like 95 pictures of him in his bathrobe doing weird stuff."
'I considered myself a legend before I did this'
Dennison said the photo shoot experience was great.
"It was a little weird because a lot of people were driving by, and I knew a lot of people that were driving by. I know a lot of people from my area," Dennison said.
Dennison said his mom was, and is, pretty upset about his choice of clothing for his senior photos. However, he's still happy with the outcome and has been dubbed by both Facebook users and friends as a "legend."
"I'll be honest with you, I considered myself a legend before I did this," Dennison said. "This just took it to the next level."
