i can’t help but love my job. i love some many different parts of it. sometimes it will be newborns, sometimes it will two year olds, sometimes it will be engagements pictures. BUT i had found a new love last year. high school senior photography!! can i tell you how much fun it was last year to photograph these amazing young people? they had their heads together. they knew where they wanted to go. they knew what they wanted to do with their lives. each and everyone of them amazed me. i wish i had my head together when i was a senior. sheesh. i’m lucky if i knew which socks were clean on my bedroom floor. and do be honest, sometimes i didn’t. sorry about that personal tidbit of information. you can be rest assured that i now know which ones are clean and which ones aren’t. see i can be mature!!!
let me introduce to you this amazing bangor high school senior. she came to be via facebook. good ol’ facebook – how i love ya. you see, her mom and i went to school together. actually junior high. way back when we didn’t know what facebook was about or cell phones or even computers for that matter. her daughter reached out to me, friended me on facebook and asked me to take her senior pictures. how could i say no?
we met up on a beautiful april afternoon. i picked her and a friend up (it’s always fun to bring a friend along) and off we went. we went to a few very cool locations – some with permission (thank you Mid Coast Fine Antiques of Maine )and some we didn’t have permission (thank you old abandoned home ready to fall in). we laughed and had the best afternoon. this girl was fun, vibrant, full of energy, a lover of life and everything that came with it. she has an artistic eye that i hope she follows. she has a gift that she should roll around in and swallow it up. grab life by the horns you beautiful girl!!! and thank you for spending the afternoon with me. ~hugs
