Lakin, Flagstaff High School, Class of 2023 – Completing the Circle

I first photographed him in 2005, and his wide eyed startled face as a baby made me laugh out loud. It still does! (Stay tuned for another post with those early portraits of the Smiths.)

When we did his senior portraits, it was so enjoyable to see who he’s become. Spoiler alert: he can still do the startle face, only now he’s added a whole host of additional hilarious and heartwarming expressions. His bilateral alternating eye brow lift is AWESOME! His freezing, numb hands couldn’t keep the smile from his face, he’s THAT good natured.

This was bittersweet because he is the youngest of the Smith family, Jen’s baby. I’ve SO enjoyed photographing each of her wonderful kids at this milestone, and having Jen along for each session just makes it that much more special.
