However, after my conference with Gage and his mom I went away thinking he was neither impressed with me, my talents, or the idea of being photographed. It was the typical "guy thing" and I concluded that I was going to have my work cut out for me the day of the session. Yet, I'll have to admit that I had totally misjudged him. The day of the shoot Gage was on point and it was a pleasure watching him become more comfortable before the camera with each shot.
What I like about this session with Gage is that it shows a mature young man who didn't put on airs but stayed true to himself. Maybe that's why he drives a big ole honking truck named "Dixie" and is already successfully employed. Congratulations, Gage, you're my top "Senior of the Year" candidate. I wish you lots of success upon graduating.
