Holden came to me for photographs on a bright sunny Saturday morning – just after I worked with his aunt, Elizabeth for a high school senior shoot.
When I met Holden, I could see how his name fit him well. The meaning of the name “Holden” is Deep Valley. Holden had a way of seriously taking everything in throughout our time together and I could tell he had an opinion about all that we did.
Walking along the tracks in Historic Norcross, he looked at each facet of the railroad– the wonder of all the details showing on his face. He patiently let me capture the pictures of him that his parents had in mind – there and as we walked in Thrasher Park.
I often think when I am walking through a photo shoot – “How is it that there are no two people alike? “And – as always – “how fun is it that I have the joy of photographing this slice of life!”
So happy to have met you, Holden – will be cool to see you as you grow!
