I have really enjoyed photographing this family over the past few years. I first photographed John’s oldest brother back in 2010 for his senior photos. I then followed up a couple of years later, and photographed his other brother back in 2013 for his senior session. So imagine my surprise when mom called me up and said that it was time for John’s senior portrait session. I just couldn’t believe that her “baby” was old enough to be a high school senior already. Makes me reflect on my own family and how I know that some day, this will be my situation. Time just flies by way to fast….
The last couple of shots, where John is playing around with the basketball, were a special request from mom. There is special meaning to them. You see, John, in his young life, has already fought and beat cancer. Mom wanted to showcase just how far he has come and just how strong he is now. The only visible scar that is left that is indicative of his long cancer journey, is the one on his leg, which to me, barely shows up. He is an amazing young man, who, with his strength and determination, is going to do great things his life! Congrats John!
