“ The Graduate Captured ”
Senior portraits haven't really happened for my son - so why miss this opportunity to capture him? In just a few days my son will be graduating high school so I felt the cap was a necessary element. The funny part of that is that's my old cap! Every good portrait painter includes elements that define a person so in addition to the cap, I had my son sit in his personal car. This car is his baby as he's been rebuilding it and modifying it to suit his personal taste. I'm really proud of his mechanical skills. Instead of a graduation gown or even his normal school attire of a dress shirt, tie, and jacket - I let him dress comfortably because that defines him in his car and working on his car.
