Have you ever met one of those people that just won't get knocked down, no matter what? That's Leo. Leo is my hair and makeup artist's little brother and it's been a real honor to have photographed three seniors in their family (number four is on our model team this year)!
This dude has had a number of sport related injuries but that has never stopped him from pursuing his high school athletic career. He's played hurt, he's played in every kind of brace imaginable and he just kept going. His strength and dedication to his team and to the sport not only show his commitment but also the effort he puts into everything he does. I may be biased because I've known him a while, but he's a pretty cool dude and I'm glad I got to do a quick session with him this year.
To attest to his strength and dedication, what you don't see in these pictures is that Leo had surgery on his knee not too long before his pictures and he was still able to make it through all the dude poses I have in my arsenal. That's something. Enjoy a few favorites from his session.
Can't wait to see where your next adventure takes you, Leo! Best of luck, dude.
