One look at this site and you can tell that most of my clients have “littles” – kids 4-feet and under. So, when Alisha contacted me to take Justin’s senior photos, I was flattered, and nervous. My diversion tactics for meltdowns and toddler-appropriate jokes wouldn’t *quite* have the same effect on a 17-year-old. But Alisha is family (and she kindly accepted all of the disclosures about my inexperience with seniors). Well, I shouldn’t have worried at all because Justin’s sense of humor and easy-going personality made this session a blast. And once the rest of the gang joined in the fun for some family portraits, my only challenge was to steady the camera from all the laughing I was doing. Between their jokes and all the banter, it’s easy to see that this family is fun-loving. Thanks for the ab workout, guys!
Alisha’s voice echoed with both pride and astonishment during the shoot, “I can’t believe you’re a senior.” For a brief instant, I could see my not-yet-5-year-old reaching this same milestone and could hear myself repeating that same sentiment. How bittersweet for you, Alisha and Glenn. As Glenn eloquently put it, “You can’t go back.” Justin, you’ve got a good head on your shoulders and a loving family behind you – my best to you in your final year of high school (and don’t forget to let me know about that mural we discussed!).
