Hope for the Class of 2020
Looking back on my own children's senior years, I am grateful for each milestone they reached that helped make them ready for the transition to college. It may seem trivial in light of a worldwide virus, but each of those closing senior moments, that are being missed by the Class of 2020, prepared them to be ready to move on into the world as independent adults. As my kids would say, those events - senior nights, state tournaments, scholarship programs, proms, senior banquet and graduation itself, help them close the yearbook. These same events gave us as parents a feeling of pride and accomplishment. We did it! We got them safely to adulthood. We look back on those days and smile at the memories, the pictures, the Facebook comments and Instagram posts. My prayer is that the class of 2020 finds ways to have closure for their senior year and is capturing this experience. For parents, continue to celebrate your senior. Be creative and be sure to document. You will want to have memories that make you smile, not memories of what was lost. Who knows, maybe the Class of 2020 will be the ones who truly make a difference in our world!

My plan is to document each senior photo shoot and share a few lessons about photography and life. Each time I shoot, I learn a little something more about lighting, settings and posing. I also learn about my subjects and their hopes and dreams for the future as they begin senior year. I hope to capture a bit of those dreams in my images and to play a small role in helping them come true.
