After Grace and I finish photographing her pianist portraits we headed outside to get some formal and casual SENIOR PORTRAITS!!!! Yep! That’s right!! She is an amazing pianist and she is graduating this year!!! This beautiful little area reminded me of Paris, Italy, or France. Beautiful places that cause you to dream.

A photographer’s favorite things are fences, barns, wide open fields, trees….. okay, EVERYTHING!!! Grace had a beautiful spot in mind for these casual portraits. I loved her choices! <3 <3 <3

Grace has a really spunky, funny, willing to do anything personality. Some of the poses were her ideas!!! I love it when senior’s have brainstormed ideas of things they want to try or say that awesome phrase, “Hey, take a pic of this or could we try one with me doing…..”. Grace is that type of girl. Doesn't matter if it is December outside and we both might have been freezing. Her smile and humor kept us laughing and warm.

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming”

She’s a dreamer, a doer, a thinker. She sees possibility everywhere.

A great attitude becomes a great day, which becomes a great month, which becomes a great year, which becomes a great life.

It seems like yesterday that we first meet, but that is how quickly life goes by. Embrace the moments you are in and take everything to the Lord. Take each step forward as you trust Him, but remember to be grateful for the steps you have taken. You might feel like life is not moving fast enough or life won’t slow down, but remember that in the whirlwind, you pass by people who need your smile and kind words. Don’t forget to share it with them and help them smile in the rain.
