As a photographer who has photographed literally thousands of high school seniors, there is one session that now stands out above the rest – my very own son’s session! Eric, affectionately known as Buddy, is about to graduate in June, so his girlfriend Lindsey, who’s also graduating this year, came over and we had the loveliest of sessions right here on our property. Now, as a Dad of a special needs boy, I’ve met and hung around dozens of kids and adults like this, but never, and I mean never, have I witnessed what Buddy and Lindsey share – a romance that, well, reminds of what romance really is. As for the resulting photos? I welcome any and all adjectives you’d like to share! Enjoy!
Images I shot for Mary Lee’s House ,a child advocacy not-for-profit organization that provides medical and mental health services for victims of child abuse. Although in some of these images the children are happy, some are not, for obvious reasons. This was a hard hitting project that points to some pretty daunting realities for some children. Glad to be a part of this project and to help forward their important mission. www.MaryLeesHouse.org
PS Um, I don’t think I’ve cracked the code on WordPress image layout – stay tuned!
