At graduation time, I took photos of the graduates from my church, Mills River United Methodist Church, in Mills River. One of the young men I took some snapshots of was Nick Jones, a long-time member of the church, and a very special young man. As I shared these photos with his mom, she asked if we could take some more formal photos of Nick with his cap (his gown had been turned in for graduation), sharing that she loved the quality of the photographs. So a week later we worked inside the historic chapel and around the grounds to capture some senior photographs that capture Nick and his strong faith.
Nick is a great young man, with plans to attend Western Carolina University in just a few weeks. I have watched him grow up through his high school years, and so happy that I was able to take his photographs. His mom will have treasured keepsakes for her walls for the rest of his lifetime.
Thanks for this opportunity, Nick! And good luck at Western!
