When I think of my interactions with this family I immediately think of authentic. Even though it’s been a while since I have seen them they remain steadfast to that very word. I got to sneak a few family photos before we focused on Mateo. That last time I photographed him was 8 years ago. He was just as respectful, quiet and assured as I remembered him to be. He choose a few of his favorite locations in Kansas City to be photograph at. I also happen to love those places so it worked out well. He even showed me of a hidden bridge I was unaware of and fell in love with. It was a such a great session with such an authentic, kind and handsome young man.
David’s family is very dear to mine. I feel like I have literally watched him grow up before my eyes. I am not sure who was in more shocked that it was time to schedule senior session his mom or I. Just doesn’t seem possible! David is an excellent story teller. I often found myself caught up in his story and forgetting to also take photographs. It was a fun session and I think we got some great images.
