Brandon's mom, Julie, contacted me earlier this spring to make his pictures. I know Julie from my work with Hearts at Home (I've photographed the annual conference for several years and have made portraits for CEO Jill Savage). Julie did the accounting for Hearts and now runs her own consultancy.
Brandon's family lives just outside Bloomington, IL, near Downs, where he recently graduated from Tri-Valley High School. Brandon played football there and finished with an outstanding academic record as well.
Here are a few of the images from Brandon's senior session at the studio. Many thanks, Brandon, for letting me make your pictures and best wishes for the future.
