I knew I would love photographing this high school senior when his mom came in and said, "he's just a country boy at heart". Well, we do live in East TN....so you might think that's not really saying much. But when I was a senior, I hated living here. I was always afraid I would grow up to marry a cowboy and live on a farm. 

Ironically enough, when I met my husband, he was wearing Wranglers, boots, a cowboy hat and a belt buckle so big we both could've eaten dinner on it. Though he doesn't dress that way anymore, we're both very much in love in with our area and love doing life with people who feel the same. ((And I wouldn't even fall apart if we lived on a farm.))
