How did this happen? When I first met her, she was a little girl in a clamorous classroom at Sechrist Elementary School. Now, the person I was seeing though my camera’s lens was a newly minted adult!
Her senior photo session happened exactly one month after her 18th birthday. Emily, her mom, and I basically just cracked up in the flowers all afternoon.
She was just as amazing and funny, intelligent, and beautiful as she always is, but this time, there was also this undercurrent of something else… Wisdom? Maturity? When she gives you that signature stare, you do NOT want to mess with her! 🙂
She works hard and has made a lot of things happen for herself, her work ethic and grit are admirable. And when it comes down to it, she’s just a totally delightful person to be around. Kind, quick-witted, hilarious. Our town will be emptier when she heads off to college. I guess I’ll have to make her mom Lexi keep me posted on all that comes next.
