I first met JD about two years ago at my church. What struck me the most about him was how passionate and devoted he was, and still is, to Jesus. Over the course of the past couple of years, I’ve gotten to know JD a lot better and yet he still impresses me each and every day. He really is an amazing person, and anyone who knows him would completely agree.
To celebrate JD’s completion of his undergraduate degree at Palm Beach Atlantic University, we took some portraits in downtown West Palm Beach near PBA’s beautiful campus.
First we headed to the island to take advantage of the gorgeous water views, and of course, a really big tree!
This area has so many beautiful spots and it really captures the feel of Palm Beach living.
With sunset fast approaching, we looked across the water and remembered that this large graffiti wall had just been completed in downtown. We quickly drove across the bridge and over to the wall to get these last shots with a more urban feel. I love these because they not only capture the uniqueness of West Palm’s urban beach life, but they also so brilliantly capture JD: he is unique, fun-loving, and full of life.
And this is what I like to call, “the money shot.” I love this picture.
Thank you, JD, for letting me capture you at such an important time in your life. I know that you are going to continue to be an inspiration to those around you and accomplish amazing things!
