Holy batman – Mr. Taylor nailed his senior photo shoots. Hockey at his home rink, urban in his hometown, football on his home field… YES!!! Big props to his mom for organizing ice time at the rink for Taylors 1st photo shoot. It was my 1st time photographing at/in a rink and it was crazy fun. A few weeks later we met up again for his 2nd shoot which we planned as a more urban style in his hometown of Hastings, MI. Love that town – it has a unique quaintness about it and several gems of spots for photos. It’s always great to walk around a small town on a photo shoot ~ lots of honks, hoots, waves, & “you look great dude” from all around. Taylors shoot was completed with a little throw-back football style at his home stadium. One of my favorite moments of his shoot was walking into the stadium with Taylor (who is seriously the Tall Dark and Handsome Prince Charming) in his jersey with tons of youngsters swarming around us (the field was hosting a tournament event) all big eyed as they asked him if he played for the High School Team. He was famous!!! Younger kids admire high schoolers so much and add that he was a football player – total royalty as far as those kids were concerned – it was super fun! Thank you Taylor for allowing me the opportunity to create custom portraits for you and your family. You are a wonderful young-man and it was a pleasure meeting you. Best wishes in your future & go get those big cities! Sparty On!!!
