Tyler’s mom, Terrie, contacted me after I photographed the Long Family maternity session about senior portraits. Tyler is a senior at Liberty Christian Academy preparing to graduate in a few weeks. In the fall, he’ll be a freshman at Liberty University basically across the campus and plans to play football for the Flames!
So, last Thursday I met up with Tyler and his mom to start his session at Williams Stadium. I hadn’t met Tyler before then and you always wonder if you are going to get the “real” person to come across but I didn’t have to worry. We had a good time quoting “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” (It’s a good thing because I cannot quote The Office to save my life!) when we needed him to laugh and later on he started goofing off between pictures (he’ll probably hate me for including some – sorry!) – which to me said he was feeling pretty much himself!
When mom and I planned the date of the session, neither of us knew that the NFL draft began that night. I don’t really follow football besides Liberty. In fact, Tyler was in disbelief when I confessed that I hadn’t been to an actual game until I came to LU. My high school didn’t have a football team! So, needless to say I tried to keep my session timely so that he wouldn’t miss it – I think we got him home in time! Hope you all enjoy some of my favorite images!
Congratulations to Tyler and the LCA Class of 2013!
