I had the privilege of photographing the family of one of my dearest friends this past weekend. She decided to have her session at one of my favorite local shooting locations – Virginia Western’s Community Arboretum. Oopps! We forgot prom for several high schools was the same day….and I guess the arboretum is also a favorite location of several HUNDRED other people, most of whom were armed with cameras. By the way, prom dresses have sure changed from when I was in high school (which according to my 6 year old is back when Jesus walked the earth) but that’s probably another post, perhaps on a different blog! 🙂 Fortunately, we were able to find a quiet little nook with some nice light and soon the inundation lightened and then disappeared altogether.
So without further ado and ramblings, here is “T”, a wonderful young guy and a great friend of my son. His mom was a little worried about his shoe laces, but I think they just MAKE this portrait!
