Avon Park High School's Emily J. is the definition of photogenic and a true sweetheart too. I loved spending the gorgeous springtime Florida afternoon with her and her family as we traveled from their hometown ballfield to her lakeside backyard to the seat of a perfectly weathered canoe at sunset. I love getting to know my seniors during our sessions and thinking about how these images tell their story of where they have been, to where their feet are planted today to where their wings will take them tomorrow. And as a sentimental person I couldn't help but to get all nostalgic at the very end of our session as Emily walked alone to the end of her childhood dock, a warm springtime breeze in the air, her eyes towards the golden setting sun the horizon with the glimmer of its reflection, like a memory, on the waves.
Congrats Emily! And here is to a bright and hopefully future in all that The Lord has in store for you!
