This handsome gentlemen is my neighbor. My actual neighbor. 🙂
I live in a rural area so our idea of neighbor can encompass miles, but Dillon actually lives just a couple houses down and is the same age as my oldest daughter. His brother and one of my sons are the best of friends and practically inseparable. They’re ecstatic this year because for the first time since Kindergarten they actually have the same teachers!
Anyway, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to take his Senior pictures and so proud of what a fantastic young man he is. He was a delight to work with and I wish him all the best at the University of Utah. I’m sure he’ll have a wonderful time there and be a phenomenal success!
Have you ever been to Ogden High School in Utah? It’s a beautiful building! It’s also historic as it was built as part of the projects that helped our country recover from the Great Depression.
This is Joseph and he graduated fro Ogden High last spring. I was fortunate to get a chance to take his Senior pictures. What’s extra fun is that Joseph is a theatre person like me! When we went to Ogden High at the end of the session a good friend of mine who manages their theatrical spaces happened to still be there and let us into the main auditorium and the black box so we could take some images where Joseph has spent so many wonderful hours. My friend was even willing to turn on the lights for us. That is going above and beyond!
I love this image. It’s hard to explain how much the stage means to an actor. The dark theatre, the lights, the feel. It’s comfort and home and magic. Thank you Joseph (and Derek), for a wonderful day!
