"There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind."
Life goes so fast. My oldest daughter is going to be ten this year. I remember when she was born everyone would say: "Enjoy it. It goes so fast." I was like: "Yeah, right it goes fast. I haven't slept in months and am fairly certain every piece of clothing I own has some sort of puke on it, and we are just getting started." And now she's ten and I AM the one saying that to others. It really does go so fast. So I can't imagine how fast the next eight years are and she is out of the house.
Why tell you this? Because some of my favorite sessions are senior sessions. I LOVE meeting these new people that are just on the start of their adult journey. I love hearing their dreams, their favorite memories of high school, and all they hope to do. I have gotten to watch Sarah the last few years play basketball and so when her mom reached out to me to do her senior portraits I was ecstatic. We spent a beautiful fall evening exploring one of the local parks and laughing and dreaming together.
