Sweet Macy. Full of fun and spunk and determination. This session took place on a windy, windy, windy day (don't they all?) and this beautiful Senior had it all planned out. Since it was an out-of-town shoot for me, she had done some major legwork and had beautiful locations chosen. This gave us plenty of time to play.
Macy is headed to Texas Tech in the Fall and the idea of a larger city makes her glow and smile. She has big plans and lots of dreams. Her excitement was catching and I found myself reminiscing about my own graduation and going off to college. I didn't know then how free I was.
Macy senses it though....that freedom and loosing. Notice I didn't say "losing" because she's not losing anything. Her mother was along for the session which is something I love. And even though there are always tears and sentiment and love, there is so much pride and joy and care.
This was a particularly cool place. I told her to rock her very own Anthropologie catalog. She did.
Mama wanted a photo of Macy heading down a road. Truly symbolic. And then we ducked into an old shed for a little relief from the wind and some gorgeous light.
You can't shoot in Canadian without traveling to the Canadian river! A place of beauty and community. Lots of folks out walking the boardwalk of the bridge and lots of signs of a close-knit community...years of graffiti on the undersides declaring school championships, homecoming invites, people in love, pride and tradition.
Thank you Macy and mom for such a lovely evening. I laughed and smiled so much my cheeks hurt and my camera couldn't get enough of your beauty and photogenic presence. Loved the conversation, love the time spent. Loved you!!
Can I just say that this special Senior was one of the easiest, most relaxing sessions I've had yet this year. One look and his gentle spirit, infectious smile and kind heart just calm the room and make everyone at ease. Patrick is a senior in Lubbock, Texas and when his mama called asking for photographs, I jumped in my car and headed South.
I love going to Lubbock for sessions. Not only is it sort of like "going home" ( I lived there through college and the hubby is a proud Lubbockite), it's always great to get out of comfort zones and explore new places and locations. We drove around, parked and walked around whenever we saw something cool.
Patrick has talent oozing from him. He has these two great guitars and at one point, I asked "oh! are you playing John Mayer?" He laughed and said "No, I wrote that." He's very, seriously good. I told him he should major in composition or something like that. He just grinned back.
Patrick will be going to Texas Tech in the Fall and since we were close, we stopped on campus for some last-of-the-beautiful-sunlight shots. We talked about last minute Senior plans, friends and summer. His mama looked on proudly with maybe a tear or two....she is very, very proud.
And she should be.
Remember this sweet lil' thang from a few short months ago? So round and soft and pudgy and perfect? Well, I'm pleased to report she is still just so...only more babbly and expressive and wonderful!
This sweet lil' miss is a member of my Baby Steps Club and she was due for her six months photographs! How fun for me!!
One of the most fun parts of this age is their ability to be smiley and absolutely adorable and their lack of ability to scoot away from me. haha. Six months old is putty in my hands....*snicker* Not to mention just about anything is hilarious to them. Well, Miss S is very easily amused. Isn't she cute?
She made the cutest little expressions. Here I think Daddy went outside the window we were perched in from of - "why is Daddy outside?" I think her eyes are pretty amazingly blue. I love them.
We borrowed Mommy's pearls for these shots. She is a little princess indeed!
Daddy wasn't in the first set of photos we did for her and wanted to be in a few. Aren't they cute? And doesn't he look proud? Doesn't she look comfy?
I think my favorite from the set. Can't wait to get her in front of my camera again!!!

Today is the day and I need to remember.
Remember that there is food in the fridge and in the pantry enough for many meals, even if none of it is chocolate.
Remember that the sun is shining and the birds are singing and the dog is barking and the laundry can wait.
Remember that my children's loud squeals in the morning (before my coffee) are just expressions of happiness and that I can choose this too.
Remember that getting through the t0-do list is not the goal, the goal is to enjoy doing.
Remember that a busy schedule means involvement and health and ability and blessings.
Today is the day and I'm while I'm in the midst of a heavy shooting and editing schedule, sitting in dark curtain-closed rooms tap, tap, tapping away at the keyboard, peeking wistfully out at my garden dirt yard waiting for me, that the goal of today will be to rejoice and glorify.
And that is all.
