I usually shoot sports and events but a friend asked me to do a senior portrait of his son. Thoughts, tips?

I think that they are pretty good. They will be happy with these.

^^^ the above comments are all good
the other overall thing, is possibly to work on delivering more similar skin tones between the two pictures and possibly bring back the highlights slightly in the first to save the shining blown hair
- with very fair skinned people, a slight desat of the reds can work - can't take out oranges because they need some colour - sometimes even adding a little orange can help (I did this in this screenshot)
pose in #2 is very good
Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.
The pole above his head splits the first image and it would be something that I would watch out for.

Good work they should like them. I would like to see more of his eyes. he seems to be squinting some. This can be hard to overcome with some people. moving him into more shade might help.
Pretty good attempt. Looks like a win.
