One of the reasons that high school senior sessions mean so much to me is that I know all too well how fast children grow. My son is only 4 years old but it seems like we were JUST celebrating his first birthday. For me, senior sessions are very sentimental. This is such a delicate time between childhood and adulthood, when you can look at your senior and still see their face as a little boy but also the face of the man they are turning into. It’s a moment in time that I know I would want to stand still, just for a little while longer.
High school senior sessions are sentimental for me as a mother but they are also meant to be fun and light hearted. Where we celebrate them and their bright future, all their dreams and goals. Where we celebrate everything about them that makes them unique and that makes them stand out. For Corey, what stood out to me was his patience. I have never met a senior guy who WANTED to have his pictures taken but Corey was patient and he did not complain about the different poses I directed him in. After we were finished and I asked him for just one more because the sunset was on fire (seriously look at the last picture there is no other way to describe it) he obliged happily. He was so polite and I know how proud his parents are of him. His mother was absolutely so sweet and sent me his graduation invitation that turned out beautifully. My favorite part of his invitation is the bible verse his gorgeous mama put on the back “I know the plans I have for you, plans to give hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11
This truly could not be more fitting.
