Every Senior session I photograph is bittersweet, but Cole’s was especially so. I’ve known this young man for 5 years, when our son, Troy, joined the Capital Renegades baseball team. Troy and Cole hit it off immediately (no pun intended!). So seeing Cole grow to the handsome young man you see here comes as a shock to me. Where have those years gone? Where is that baby face, goofing with my baby-faced boy?
Cole is the 3rd Flynn Senior I’ve had the privilege of photographing. Starting with Joelie 5 years ago, then Kylie 3 years ago, and now Cole. For Vanessa and Tom to have such faith in me, year after year, kid after kid, is an honor. Bonus – hanging and laughing with Vanessa on each of these shoots! She acted as prop manager for Cole’s baseball gear; clothes horse for his wardrobe choices; location scout for Cole’s final set of images.
Poor Cole – after we were done shooting – all of us sweaty – we stood and talked for another half hour! God knows, Vanessa and I can talk!! Cole never acted bored or said he wanted to leave. Manners – this kid has them!
Entering his Senior year at Saratoga High, Cole will do great things. Putting his mind to whatever task he sets for himself, he always comes out on top. We wish you nothing but the best, Cole, and hope this year is your finest yet. Congratulations and enjoy 2020!!
