One of the best things about being a photographer is the friends you make and the relationships you form. When you photograph the same family over a period of time you get to know them pretty well. It’s also very nice to see how people change and grow. Nothing quite matches the first year of life, though. Last December I photographed Tyler when he was only a few days old. Over Thanksgiving weekend this year I get to take some more photos of him. He’s such a cool kid from a really great family!
UPDATE: I just got a christmas card from the family using these photos and it is absolutely fantastic. I really liked the photos before, but now I absolutely LOVE them. So Cool!
A few months ago I found myself in Liberal, KS and had the opportunity to do a senior session with Jimmy. Jimmy is a senior at Liberal High School and is the son of my Mother-in-law’s best friend. I am always excited to do a senior session, but this was extra cool!
Jimmy is very involved in the arts at his high school (very much like I was). He is in the band and the drama department and we got pretty good access to the school because of this. It was really fun shooting in the theater, the band room and the halls. Then we moved on to an area in downtown Liberal with a great alleyway (photographers are weird sometimes) and a fountain.
Jimmy has got alot of irons in the fire between all of his extra-curricular stuff and just finishing up school. He’s got a ton of potential and I wish him the best! Thanks to Jimmy and Kay for letting me document a small part of Jimmy’s life! Now on to some pics!
