You never know quite how old you’re getting until your cousin (who’s younger than you) calls and asks if you’re available to take her daughter’s high school senior portraits. While I don’t consider myself to be that old, still on the opposite side of 40, seeing this gorgeous girl all grown up made me realize just how fast time flies.
This is Marissa. Liverpool High School – Class of 2015.
(To give you some perspective, I was Liverpool High School – Class of 1993. Sure, I graduated in the last century, but I’m still cool. For real!)
I met with Marissa and her mom and headed into the Village of Baldwinsville. It’s been a while since I’ve been to B’ville, but not that much has changed, really. The Diner is still there (and that’s all that really matters.) We found an awesome wall, an awesome car and an awesome door. And her photos in B’ville were simply…(wait for it)…awesome. Once we were done with that awesomeness, we headed out to Beaver Lake. At Beaver Lake we dodged lots of kamikaze mosquitoes (not awesome), took a few shots between attacks and got the heck out of there. With about 50+ bites each, we finished up at my brother’s house on the Seneca River (yup, my family still lives there). The session was fun from start to finish (and it’s always fun to chat it up with my cousin Teri.)
Marissa is talented, smart, beautiful, thoughtful and incredibly kind and I wish her the very best in her future endeavors. Thanks so much to Marissa and Teri for letting me capture this very important milestone in her life.
