Have you ever met someone and immediately felt connected to them? I feel that way a lot actually but there are some people, like Vaughan, where the connection lasts or is just a little stronger than others. Honestly though, I have a sneaking suspicion that he has this affect on most people he meets. Vaughan has this rare and unique gift: he makes YOU feel like you're so important.
I met him a couple years ago during a session with him and some friends and he also was the Cherokee High School representative for a prom session for Anna's Bridal. I was so excited that he and his mom asked me to take his senior pictures! And when he asked if he could bring his pug to his session? I think I was in heaven! We had so much fun and went to Kennesaw Mountain and it was the perfect backdrop for his pictures - even if Pugsley did have a hard time climbing. Don't worry: we gave him a nice long break before his modeling debut.
At the end of his session, like I try to do at most sessions, I grabbed a couple pictures of him with his mom and I love how obvious their love for each other is in these images!
