Meet Dakota Cave :D.

He's 18 going on 19 (yeah, what in the world), he's got an adorable girlfriend, he loves to work out, and he's into filming! (super cool). We got along great and had a lot of fun on this shoot :D (many jokes were had. Haha).

Since he lives in Keller, TX, we met in the middle (Greenville) and his good friends the Rice family came with him! They're pretty much his second family and were a great addition to our party :D. They were also a great prompt for laughter and crazy faces from Dakota. Hehe :D

This is his signature move. Hahaha. He's not sure why.

1-dakotasenioroct18,14-5506

WEEEE found this on the ground (why does this type of mask exist??!) and Dakota could not be kept from putting it on. Hahahaha. So of course I took a picture.

Growing more confident. Hahaha. After the left pose I asked "Is that a Nacho pose?" It wasn't, but he remedied that with the right pose. Hahaha.

Taking a picture by the Greenville sign was just supposed to be funny, but then he did this on his own and it became awesome! Dakota, you rock.
