This past week I had the distinct pleasure of shooting Senior Portraits for two very special guys. One being my dear friend’s son, Chad. The other being our own son, Alan — so TALK about a tear jerker! Still dealing with the anxiety and denial of having a child who will graduate next spring, I am still struggling with the mindset that I am shooting our own child’s Senior Portraits. We travel every year with our best friends and their children and every vacation gets better and better. This year the eight of us traveled to San Francisco, CA, Lake Tahoe [California side – although Nevada was directly across the street] and Sedona, AZ. Spectacular vistas and numerous great opportunities for photographs were constant. At times we felt a little guilty [not really] stopping the boys for photo ops. By the time we got to the airport to head home, we were making jokes about stopping for a few last photos. Not to leave out our other boys (four boys – two from each family in all) we got some real stunning shots of them too. It just goes to show that photos are so important! They help us re-live moments and take us to memories we hold dear in our hearts. This trip was definitely photographed plenty and I am so thankful! A big shout-out to our friends the Hensleys for once again helping us create awesome family memories not only for us, but for our children as well. Enjoy a few of the Senior Portraits we shot while on our trip!
