Hayden's mother Gwen called me asking for my senior photo shoot prices. We seemed to immediately talk like we were old friends. She conveyed to me that she was so proud of her son and couldn't wait to document this very happy moment in their lives. She had lots and lots of ideas for what she wanted for Hayden's shoot. I could tell we were going to have a good time and I couldn't wait to meet Hayden.
Because of Hayden's very busy schedule, I didn't get to meet him until the day of the shoot. Gwen had told me that Hayden owned a Jeep that he loved so I immediately recognized him when I saw the shiny Jeep drive up. We got to work right away and Hayden was laid back, cooperative and sweet. I can see why Gwen is so proud of him - he is such a respectful young man!! We had only shot for about 45 minutes or so when Hayden and I noticed little quiet tears coming out of mom's eyes. Hayden looked at her and said "Mom! Why are you crying?!?" Gwen was like "I don't know! I can't believe your so grown up!" Awwwwwwww. How can she help herself - Hayden is so tall and handsome.
Besides his Jeep, Hayden loves to fish and play football. He wanted to take photos with his football jersey. Putting the jersey on seemed to transform him from sweet young man to fierce football player! His face and disposition changed completely!! It was like a whole new photo shoot. I loved every moment of it.
Hayden has been considering several school offers and plans to become a pharmacist. With great parents, his great personality, intelligence and good looks, I have no doubt that he is going to surpass all the goals that he sets!! Congratulations Hayden!!!!
