Troy | Class of 2017

“I will always be me… but when it comes time to step out onto that field, me gets a little more serious, a little more dedicated, and nobody stands in my way.”

I was so excited when Naomi, Troy’s mom, contacted me about taking his senior photos! Three years ago (that’s hard to believe), I took his brother’s senior photos. I’ve had the pleasure of also photographing Naomi and her husband’s vow renewal celebration. I enjoy working with this family because they are all so, so nice. They are a joy to be around.

We met in Wilmington on a beautiful, sunny day. Fortunately for all of us, it wasn’t in the 40’s like it was the day prior! It was nice getting caught up while also taking photos throughout the downtown area. When we finished up with our ‘urban’ setting, we ventured to the high school in order to capture some baseball shots too. Let me tell you all, it was quite the adventure for me when I arrived at the baseball field. If my self-confidence was hurting, it would have raised a few points that day when I managed to squeeze through a fence! I’m sure that was a sight to see! Thanks to Troy and Naomi for assuring me I wouldn’t get stuck! Haha!

Troy will be graduating this month, and he is really looking forward to it. He plans to study architecture at Southern Illinois University. I’m sure he will do very well. Good luck on your future endeavors, Troy! Congratulations on your upcoming graduation!
