Alex {senior portrait sneak peek}

There are moments when, from a distance, Alex Bodine looks like James Dean.

There are also moments when he looks like a cartoon character, or a star from some film noir interpretation of Grease, or a professional dancer.

In the end, what makes Alex special is that he is all of those things and more. He is as unique a young man as I have met, and he is wildly ambitious in wearing his dreams on his literal sleeves.

You can imagine how much fun it is to shoot a session with a guy like Alex. He is so creative, and at times I confess to feeling almost overwhelmed with the number of options we had.

Here’s a peek at the results. There are so much more, and I can’t wait to share them with Alex and his family. The cliche is to say that someday, I’ll be able to say, “I knew him when…” Well, some cliches become cliches because there is a grain of truth to them. In this case, more than a grain.
