I have not seen Riley in years. We used to go to church together but then the pandemic hit and we haven’t been back much in person. I’ve also photographed his family in the past…but again…it had been awahile. Not only is this kid HUGE now but super charming and cerebral.
Riley is a BIG car guy and he has quite the story about how he acquired his car. You can tell he really takes pride in it so we started early and saved plenty of time to make sure we got pictures with his car.
He is also into photography. You don’t say?! He LOVES photographing his car. Nice to combine passions!
Riley’s hope is to go to Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Arizona. His plan is to get his degree and then enlist in the military. The career position he wants typically goes to an enlisted man and he really wants to serve his country. (Right now he serves his community by volunteering with the police department.). Riley told me what the position was and it’s a bunch of initials that went over my head. Essentially he would be the liaison between ground troops and air support.
You can tell that this kid is going to go far. There is so much he wants to do!
Here are my favorites from his session…
And a few with his proud parents!
