this is my second time to have the privilege of capturing these two cuties. i just love the variety. they either totally love each other or want absolutely nothing to do with each other. makes for a fun session! and they’re totally adorable. that helps too.
i can’t help but notice his cute little hand just barely touching her in this next one.
Five years ago, I stood in front of my first class as a terrified teacher. no, really. terrified. 7th graders are frightening at first glance. and second glance…some are scary at every glance! And I had no idea what to expect from the 120 students that shuffled in and out of my classroom every day. But slowly, I became less scared (notice that i said less scared. I will always have a healthy respect for 7th graders.) of my students and actualy started to really love the monsters. :) And one of those monsters, except she totally wasn’t, was savannah. I loved her from the get go. And now she is a senior. It’s impossible to believe. And kinda cool. Because i kinda sorta helped her get there…you know, by teaching her writing and how to use big fancy words like kinda and sorta. :)
Congratulations on starting your senior year, Savannah! I’m so glad I was a teeny tiny part of the journey!
I’ve gone to Midland, um…three times now to photograph this family and I LOVE them. They’re just so laid back about the whole process and just fun! And Lily Kate, their daughter, is just beautiful. I’m extremely excited about the arrival of their new baby girl in August!
