I had the pleasure of meeting John Paul Whitaker and his family in Austin for an incredible senior 400mm portrait session. John Paul’s mom and dad have been long-time family friends, so meeting up with them made this session even more memorable for me.
We hit a few locations on a Sunday including the Texas State Capital, a baseball field and a few other places. One of my favorite moments was when John Paul changed into a really nice suit. He explained to me that his grandfather who passed away last year always wore fun socks. He elaborated that he wanted to emulate his grandfather to keep his memory alive. It was truly incredible.
