Nick ’12 Burlington Central

Published by Jan under senior

Nick is an avid golfer and a member of the Burlington Central Varsity Golf team so it was only natural that his session was held on a golf course!  They are members at Elgin Country Club and we received permission to shoot there even though it was closed on the day of his session.  But that was perfect because we could fly around on the golf cart to all his favorite holes and not have to worry about getting in anyone’s way.  It is a beautifully landscaped golf course and many really fun places to shoot.  Some interesting facts about Nick:
