My how time flies! Certain things have a way of making you feel older than you really are (ahem…or maybe you’re in denial about it…that, I am). Most of the time it’s your kids getting older and they reach certain milestones in life. I can say that I’m feeling a little older today, but not because of my own child, but because of this beautiful young lady! Seems like I’ve known Sophie forever! I’ll always remember her as the sweet and quiet little girl who would be in her mom’s classroom after school. One that was never afraid to play with our kids in the halls of the high school while we attended a sporting event my husband was at. Even more recently, she’s become a wonderful babysitter for our children, on that off chance the hubby and I get to go out. And now, here she is, in her senior year of high school!
I had the pleasure of taking Sophie’s sister’s senior photos several years ago, so I was over the moon thrilled when I was asked to take hers! Both Sophie, and her sister Shelby, are seniors this year. We commemorated the occasion by taking some photos of the two of them together. We also tried desperately to get a good shot of the girls and their mom, Leslie, with my Instax camera! Boy, I have some learning to do with that thing! While the weather threatened us for a bit in the beginning, by the end of our time together the skies opened up and we ended up finishing our time with the most beautiful light. A light that I can’t help but feel resembles the warmth and kindness that exudes from Sophie herself 🙂
