Caperon was so much fun to work with. He is kind hearted, hard working, and with a passion for serving others. He will be turning in his mission papers following graduation here in a couple weeks, the families who he will serve will be lucky to have him. His father, Brad came along for the shoot and he served well as my lighting assistant.
I love shooting pictures at Murray Park, I’ve done several family photography sessions there but never a senior session. During part of the session, Caperon sat down on a bench and played his cello. He was a bit nervous to be playing for passers by, in a public park, but I think he did wonderfully! I coached him a little, giving him something to focus on in his mind. “It doesn’t matter how it sounds, just imaging you’re playing the music that you’ll walk down the aisle at your wedding”. I think they turned out wonderfully!
