I wanted to take pictures that would have personal meaning to Clay.
His has always loved working with his Papa. As a little boy, he spent many afternoons watching his Papa run the bulldozer or backhoe.
Years later he learned how to operate the machines and helped his Papa on Saturdays and summer vacations. He loves those machines and the memories attached to them.
This picture was taken on the dirt road between his grandparents and great-grandparents house. He has made many trips back and forth on this road. He learned to drive a tractor and his truck on this road.
He doesn't like to have his picture made. He wasn't thrilled about taking the time to "pose" for senior pictures. It wasn't until I mentioned that a certain girl leaving for college this week might like to have a few pictures of him. That got his attention and I was able to spend a sweet afternoon taking picture after picture.
