Ok, I can’t call him a senior anymore because he has officially graduated. In fact, if my calculations are correct, he leaves tomorrow on his way to BYU to begin his college career. We had been planning to photograph Reagan for a while, and his sister Bailey and her b.f.f. Nikka also came along (you’ll see them in the coming days) but we planned it all around Reagan. It was fun joyriding along in the car to downtown Austin with these 3. When I was talking to Reagan about a few details, I asked about what other clothes he brought and he said, “this is it.” Bailey told me that she tried to convince him to bring a few more options, but he wanted to keep it simple. Ok. I can do that. We had so many fun backdrops, we didn’t need clothing changes. They had scoped out a few spots and I had some in mind, together, I am pretty excited about our locations.
I had heard about the Cathedral of Junk a while back from a photographer friend. I looked it up, and it was out there in South Austin, but we found it. I was pretty happy to see Reagan’s joy upon discovering this place. A man built up a 3 story junk tower in his backyard and welcomes strangers in to view it. Have you ever heard of the phrase, Keep Austin Weird? Oh yes.
Pictures really don’t do this place justice. I’ll show more of this place with the girls. Reagan, it was fun!
