We jumped fast at the chance to take a spin away from a more traditional senior portrait session. Mason’s parents hired us with the wish to document the life of their son and the elements he loves most at 18 years old. This project was such a solid experience for us. This is but one example of the many families working hard to raise grounded, respectful and purposeful young men. Mason is: the reigning homecoming king, an honor student, the recipient of a full university scholarship, a track and football star who set several new records, making plans to become the next President of the United States, a late night watcher of Jon Stewart & Colbert with his mom four nights a week, tired of his 17 year old brother stealing his clothes, good big brother to his little sister and reads to her often, a fan of the movies American Psycho and Babe (yes, the pig movie), a guy who drives a sweet vintage 1985 Cadillac Eldorado Coupe that suits him well, the son who has never given his mom a minute of trouble & knows how to pray.
