From the moment I met Hayden, I was impressed. This is a senior guy who first and foremost loves his dog, Cooper! But hearing his story and his ambitions gives me so much hope for future generations. He is on the varsity wrestling team at Oakland High School, so he knows how to handle himself, and he loves fishing with his buddies. Hayden is also planning on giving back! He is in the process of enlisting in the United States Marine Corp to serve and protect our country.
I had the opportunity to spend 2 hours with Hayden during his session, and I can honestly say it was a delight! He was so easy-going and did every thing I asked without a single complaint! I absolutely loved watching him with Cooper, his dog. It turns out Cooper does not love being around the water, but Hayden was so gentle and sweet with him that Cooper couldn’t help but cooperate, at least a little! Picturing a guy who can pin anyone in the ring, but can soothe a nervous dog makes me think Hayden will make an excellent marine! A mix of strength and calm!
Hayden, I loved working with you! You were awesome! Thank you for choosing me to capture this unique time in your life. Best of luck in your senior year and as a future Marine! I’m so grateful for those who step up and serve our great country!
