This is photo session is one that I won’t soon forget.  This sweetheart of a young man is about to embark on a new life in the United States Marine Corp.  Getting to hear his story and his upcoming adventure sure kept me occupied as we went from place to place capturing images for his senior session.  I had no idea what Security Forces are or that it could mean a whole new life of guarding a base, a nuclear facility or embassy somewhere around the world.  I heard all about Parris Island, South Carolina and Norfolk, Virginia;  all about parachuting, terminal velocity, Humvees and what life could look like for a career in the military.  This guy is such an easy talker and a great communicator.  His mom has done a fine job raising this young man to be a patriotic American... tough enough to join the Marines and at the same time he has a sweet and gentle side to him too.  All in all, it was a great session getting to know a very unique young man.  All the best on your endeavors Thomas.  We are so proud of you!
