It was a brisk, sunny morning in October and even as the frigid breeze blew through her hair, she remained resolute. I looked through my camera at the face of this strong, accomplished, near adult in front of me, and then I saw it. Brief flashes of versions of her younger self. The two year old cutie I’d photographed after her little brother was born. The preschooler with the adorable giggle and the almost white blonde hair. But then, they were gone. A beautiful, poised, grown up Macy returned. Those little flashes were fleeting but they made me smile.
I asked her to meet me at the track just after sunrise and she cheerfully agreed. A teenager that cheerfully agrees to a sunrise portrait is extraordinary in my book! I think she likely developed that fortitude doing cross country, soccer, and track. I’m not exactly sure how she finds time for all of that between school work and time with friends.
Besides having that athlete’s toughness, Macy is also just really fun! It was a blast to make portraits with her again.
