This sneak peek is for Lisa who so wonderfully shared her space with myself and a few friends this past Sunday at her home on Chicago’s North Side to host a high school senior mini photo session event!
And when I tell you this bite sized version of Marmalade Photography was perfect for the guys, I am not joking!! It was a great experience, the afternoon flied by and I got to reconnect with some of my all time Marmalade Family members and their friends.
Win – win!
This last sneak peek from the boys’ senior photo session is of O. I have watched this young man and his siblings grow up in front of my camera and when I say that it is an HONOR to watch babies and preschoolers grow up and be able to document this passage of time for their parents…I absolutely mean it. Many times I see families every few years, documenting their family history, the kids’ growth, the relationships grow between everyone…I have had clients celebrate major life events, celebrate their renewed health after a health scare…I have had clients celebrate a variety of life events with photos capturing that time and mood. Most importantly I have witnessed so many kids grow from toddling Littles to full grown not-so-Littles. When I tell you that it is disarming to witness how *quickly* time passes I really mean it. Keep in mind that a child freezes in my mind to whatever my last photo session was with them, so to see them two-three-four years later is pretty disarming.
(and really very cool!!)
In this case when I saw O for the first time in three years I was stunned. He has always been a charming Little. He’s always possessed this infectious and somewhat mischievous smile mixed in with his open-hearted nature…now though he has grown SO tall mixed in with classic Abercrombie good looks. I love to watch young people grow into their own and start forming that beautiful sense of self and confidence that comes with accomplishing goals and working towards them.
So without further adieu I give you a couple sneak peeks of O’s high school senior session. Thank you to his mom Lisa…for everything. I always walk away from our sessions feeling good and Sunday was no exception. Thank you for continuing to allow me to create art for your family & home!! I am 100% certain we created some really awesome memories for you guys.
(and I’ll have a couple other sneak peeks posted in the next couple of days for you!!)
And thank you O, you are a great kid. I am so happy to be able to capture who you are right now!
