Naperville Illinois Senior Portraits with this handsome young man! On the way home from photographing this High School Senior, I started to feel emotional. I get this way from time to time, because I am just so darn happy doing what I do and I feel extremely blessed! But this time was different, it was more of a sadness. Then I reflected back on this young man and his family, realizing they were the very FIRST family I photographed outside of a studio, on my own. I photographed them year after year! I created holiday cards for them. I sat in their home and selected favorite images for print. I got to return and see those images hanging on the walls. I’ve framed up many of their photos too. And this is just a very special milestone… their youngest, now graduating High School.
I think I was sad because I will miss seeing them for those yearly, family portrait sessions. But I am excited, because who knows, maybe one day I will get to photograph a wedding?! Let’s slow down, perhaps when the kids return from college for the holidays or the summer!!!
THANK YOU so very much for entrusting me all these years to document these moments, these memories, these milestones and special times. It means so much. And I wish you all the best on this next chapter of your lives!
