Surely it can’t be considered work when it’s so much fun, right? I was just thinking when my boys were seniors, the whole “senior pictures” thing wasn’t even a big deal. Maybe more for girls, but not so much for guys. But I still remember how emotional and bittersweet that whole transition of life was. You realize there will be one less person who will always be at the dinner table because they will most likely be away. No more “every night at a game or practice”, and you wonder: Will they have so much fun they won’t want to come back? Will it be the same? But then… you’re so proud and so excited for them. It is surreal the intense emotions!
The senior pictures portion of the transition is like a special day to pay tribute to how special they are — how beautiful and “princess”-worthy they are. And it’s a day to see how many ways you can put them in settings that say, “This is my baby at this time in her life, and I want to remember it and in some way hold on to it forever!” That’s the fun part!
Especially with someone like Kelly! She is an amazingly accomplished athlete, taking her Churchill team to the regional soccer playoffs as a goalie. So, although she is strikingly beautiful and feminine, she was willing to do anything! Climb up windmill ladders, lay on railroad tracks and in piles of bluebonnets. Switch outfits in the blink of an eye — certainly too fast for anyone to take notice 🙂 And best of all! She wanted her best friend, Ally, to be honored in her photos, which makes her SUCH a girl after my own heart! That dog was PRECIOUS!!!!!
