As a professional photographer specializing in senior pictures, I have photographed a lot of high school seniors over the years. I’ve enjoyed every single one! It’s so much fun to get to know them and to learn more about their aspirations and dreams and their views of the world around them. It’s especially fun to document this one-in-a-lifetime period of their lives, as they embark on adult-hood.
This one is a little bit different. As a mom, I knew this day would come. I have been obsessed with photographing my son since birth and pictures of him adorn almost every wall in our home. I cherish the younger days and I’ve been blessed to enjoy watching him grow, learn and become an incredible, sweet and loving person. When I originally asked him where he wanted to go for his senior pictures I was actually surprised that he said, “I want you to take them mom!” I would say that’s the best compliment I could get.
I am so incredibly proud of this amazing kid. He is polite, responsible, friendly and funny and he’s done an terrific job of cultivating a special group of friends, who are equally great kids. He’s been a member of the boys tennis team and the school bowling team throughout his high school tenure and was also on the swim team in middle school. However, bowling is his passion. He started when he was about 4 years old and hasn’t stopped. It’s been an incredible ride watching him work so hard to perfect his skills. His entry into the USBC Junior Gold program last year culminated in earning a spot in the annual Junior Gold tournament. That tournament, with almost 4,000 kids coming to Detroit from all over the nation, was a game-changer for him. He made several new friends and had the opportunity to learn from some of the best junior players in the nation!
I could not be more proud of him and every day, I thank God for bringing him into my life. He is my angel.
We still have a couple more sessions planned at some of his favorite places, but these images represent our first attempt at capturing the incredible young adult that he is becoming.
So blessed…Love you buddy!
