I've been photographing this family since 2012, so when his mom contacted me about capturing Philip in his fencing gear, I was all for it! Not only was it something totally new for me, but I totally agreed with her on wanting to capture this memory for him (just in case he decides not to pursue it later on). I was even more excited when she was excited for a location that i've always wanted to try (but either clients couldn't be convinced, or timing/safety/time of year wasn't right). It worked out perfectly (with a few tiny snags), and Philip looked adorable in his gear and did SO good! This was my 7th (!!) shoot for this family, and I loved every minute of it!
