An old soul...

is how I would describe Jacob. I didn't really know him very well before our shoot because he is not in any of my classes, but by the time we were finished, I felt like I had a pretty good idea of what this guy is about. There is a wisdom about him beyond his 18 years; he is smart, genuine, and has a good heart.

We had an awesome opportunity to shoot somewhere noone else will get to. The west end of the Osborn building has been under remodeling construction for some time now. The day we stopped by, the cement floor had been poured the day before, but not much else had progressed yet. So, I popped in to ask Riley if we could shoot in there, and he thought it would be OK. The crew started framing in the walls the very next day, so we just happened into a one day opportunity! It turned out to be a great urban location!

For a girl who kept saying

"I've never really had my picture taken professionally before!" You sure wouldn't know it from these shots. She worked it out, don't you think?!? These were for a quick (as in 5 mins) session outside the high school. Maybe I can convince Veronica to go for a full hour and a half shoot!

I am on a roll...

In the last four weeks I have photographed four great senior guys. Meet Trent: not only is he smart, but he is a seriously talented athlete as well. I have watched this kid play football for four years now and he continually leads his team into any given game with grace, honor and dignity. But the best thing? He lives his life off the field with those same qualities.

The M.H.S. all-time single game passing record!
And the lovely Ali!

Jordan's Senior Shoot

First of all, if you have not met this kid, you are missing out! His parents are proud of him for many great reasons, but the thing that hit me the most was when we finished his shoot, he was happy he still had time to make it to church. What a genuine guy he is!
Secondly, you can't beat living in the Mid-West in the fall...look at these colors and light!

More to come tomorrow. :-)
