Adam. Vivacious. Fashionable. Passionate. Photographer. Foodie.
To document the milestone of graduating high school, we traversed the northwest suburbs. With his mom, and good friend, Payton, along for the journey, we started in Long Grove. In this middle of the historic part of town is a covered bridge. I love how Adam's red plaid shirt contrasted with the faded green of the bridge.
A million dollar smile with sparkling blues eyes that looked like they were drawn with a crayon made from the sky.
The other side of the bridge featured this beautiful line of fencing. Adam looks like he's been plucked out of a fashion ad!
We moved on to Libertyville, for a more urban look. Traffic and street lights helped to accomplish that vision. A stoplight is much longer than one would think!
We walked around downtown Libertyville, looking for pockets of light. We found this great park at the center of town. The Nikon Nikkor 85mm 1.4 lens worked great for this low-light scene. It beautifully compressed the background and made big, round bokeh lights in distance.
For part two of his shoot, we took advantage of an available stage. Adam is a talented actor and singer. I've gotten to watch him in productions with Spotlight Youth Theater often. His latest roles were Linus in "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" and as nicest kid, Brad, in "Hairspray". I hope he continues performing through adulthood!
Congratulations on your graduation, Adam! I can't wait to see what the future has in store for you! You're feisty and determined and those two things will take you far in life!
