Yesterday I met with Tyler and his mom Cathy to create some custom senior portraits. We had a great time; we even had snow on the ground in some spots this early in the season!
When I pondered what to title this post, I was just struck by Tyler’s quiet strength. Not the kind of quiet that never speaks, not the kind that’s insecure or timid, but the kind of quiet that runs deep and strong. It seems to me that Tyler has quiet contentment all wrapped up in an outdoorsman’s dedication. It’s quite a unique combination, and one that, if God has it in His Plan, will make a great Forest Ranger some day.
Tyler is a hunter. It was fun to hear how just yesterday morning he was up before dawn tracking coyotes at his grandparents’ property… Yeah, up before dawn… On Thanksgiving Break! Like I said, he’s focused!
We tried to be as inconspicuous with the gun as possible, but… Did get a few strange looks!
The light streaming through the trees from under this bridge was SO cool. What a handsome guy, huh?!
We went a bit further up the mountain into the COLD to create some portraits up by my favorite wintery gate. Don’t know who it belongs to, but it always reminds me of winter in Narnia .
Tyler got his BIG truck from his grandparents, who are very special to him (and he to them, I’m sure!). This portrait is one of a set that is especially for them.
Thanks so much for allowing me to capture this point in your life, Tyler. I know God has great plans in store for you!
Talk with you soon,
