I've known Kai since 6th grade, when we met in Mrs. Cosby's english class. 11 years later, I had the pleasure of photographing him and his girlfriend Melanie's graduation pictures. A lot has changed in those 11 years: back then, I wore Rocket Man-esque transition lens glasses and Kai rotated a series of NBA jerseys on a once-weekly basis. On May 9, 2015, Kai graduated from the University of Arkansas with a degree in computer engineering, and will be starting a job at Phillips 66. The shoot was a lot of fun, and it also provided a great opportunity to visit beautiful Fayetteville, Arkansas. Congratulations to both Kai and Melanie. I wish you the best!
