Graduation 2014 at Rockport Fulton High School has come and gone. Alex was the guy winner for my free senior session and I had the opportunity to work with him during the whirlwind of the last few days of his high school career. He is respectful and very easy going. Our session started on one side of Rockport and took us all the way across the sleepy little beach town. He didn’t seem to mind my chatter and directions and was great to work with. I wish you all the best Alex as you set out on your next great adventure.
Enjoy my Q&A with Alex and some photos from his session.
