Awesome. To the tenth power.
That’s what Jakob is. Seriously. Not only was he a fun, outgoing guy, his middle name is Sloan.
Jakob. Sloan. Ah, that name says it all.
I met up with Jake for his shoot and he was all about it. Seeing that I’ve only had a couple of senior guy shoots, I’m used to the “I’m-cool-and-my-mom-is-making-me-take-senior-pictures” kind of attitude from the guys. Oh, not Jake.
Jake was ready to throw out the laughs, smiles and even the GQ stares. We hit it off because, well, we’re awesome. And we had a lot in common about music. (I’m so glad that even at my almost 32 years of age, I can still relate to 18 year olds through music. Eh, except for that hard-core stuff, I’m soooooo over that now.)
So, we trekked around Steele and since I’ve never shot there before, it was a nice change of scenery. And I love finding new locations. We finished up at his high school, something I think every senior should do.
Jake, you are one cool dude, I tell ya. You totally made my day when you told me you thought I was about 25 or 26. Oh, you dear sweet boy!! I had a great time with you and your mom and sis, and I know you’ll have an awesome future in front of you! Best wishes!
