senior pics

This past weekend, I photographed Alex’s senior portraits. She’s been excited about getting them for years,. When she was about 12 years old, she accompanied me to a shoot where I photographed a friend’s daughter.

“When I’m a senior, can we hire a photographer for my photos?”

I looked at her like she’d grown a second head.

“Lookie-here, sporty,” I said. “I’ve been dreaming of the day I’ll be shooting these images for you your entire life. I’m afraid that’s the downside of having a mom who loves her camera, kid — you’re stuck with my portraits.”

她看上去有点失望,但什么也没说。

Anyway, these are some of my favourites of the ones we took.

Thank heavens, she seems pleased.

(Crazy to think her compulsory school years are coming to an end!)
