Haven't Been Here for a While

It seems like quite a while since I've blogged anything. All of a sudden, life got unexpectedly busy--in a good way, but busy nonetheless. School with its final exams and graduation, opportunities to photograph a variety of people and events, and even photography classes have made the past few weeks pass by in a blur, but it's been so much fun.
A few of my seniors asked if I would take their senior pictures, and I was honored to do so. The Lord has perfect timing, too, because I am taking classes at church from professional photographers who are teaching me SO much; I am inundated with information, but I've been able to use it all to make my pictures that much better; that much more special. I love it
The location of my portraits is a local hot spot--at least to my students. It's the JFK Memorial in a rougher part of town that has secluded this one little area and left it beautiful and serene. It's a bit multi-faceted, as it has a gorgeous stone and wrought iron bridge, a fountain area where children and animals can play, and a Spanish-style gazebo area that overlooks a lush backdrop before the skyline of the city breaks through. It's breathtaking, really.

Lovin' that Man of Mine

As a senior class sponsor, I often get to revisit some of the "fun stuff" of high school, and as May rolls around, so do the end of the year activities that all 12th graders count down (with the help of their eager English teacher) starting at day 289 way back in August. (we're now down to day 18 before graduation!)

But...we've had the Senior Dinner, academic awards, school presentations, and even the prom. My faithful husband has attended every one with me, and I am so proud and pleased.

Everyone that I work with loves him (how could they NOT), and I never thought I would be able to love him more, but each day I do. He truly is the better half of me.

This is from the senior dinner. I don't have our Prom Photo yet!
