Connor | Class of 2018

“If you have the right mental attitude, nothing can stop you from achieving your goals.”

Connor is expected to graduate in May 2018. I met up with him on two separate occasions. Once in late summer at the Clifton Pool to capture some images of the lifeguard portion of his life and then again after school started to get some casual shots and football ones.

When we met at the pool, it was actually my first time there. We met before the pool actually opened, so we didn’t have a bunch of people around or a number of distractions. Even better was the fact that it was hot out, and I stood in water for some of the shots!

Because Connor has played football in Clifton for as long as he has been able to, we had to get football photos too. Central has a fun tradition of spray painting the overpass near the high school with the senior football players’ names each year. With the help of his mom (who was our traffic control), we were able to take some on the bridge near his name.

The most memorable shooting location, however, was probably the locker room. Connor warned me before going in that it might smell… oh my! We didn’t stay in there long. 🙂

It was hot the day we met, so I’m sure that didn’t help. LOL

Here’s wishing the Central Comets the best of luck with the remainder of their season and good luck to Connor in your final year of high school!
