this is jake and his best friend, buddy. i love dogs. sometimes more than people! so when jake’s awesome mom, jackie, asked if buddy could come to the session with them, i was thrilled! jake also loves music and recently started playing his guitars acoustic and electric – again. He played some great songs while we shot his session. he likes some of the same music I do, which is really a refreshing break from the crap – er, fine music – that my daughters favor on B96 all day, every day.
I have realized that most senior boys end up in my studio because it makes mom really, really happy. once there, they either love the rock star treatment, or they make mom take them out for ice cream afterward, as their reward for being patient enough to get great photos from their session. it’s funny, you know, that even when the “boy” is 6-foot tall and over 200 pounds, they still are little boys at heart. isn’t that the truth with all guys?
jackie was a huge help, especially with buddy. She moved from one side to the other of the bench, calling buddy with treats in hand, so we could get some cool artsy photos with both her “kids.” we were also lucky enough to get a few lovely images of her and jake together. it is indeed a rare opportunity when a teenage boy puts his arms around mom for a photo!
it was a perfect day with jackie, jake and buddy. Always honored when a family invites me into their world for a few hours; and we always part as friends!
