Photographing all of these fresh faced and excited High School Seniors this Spring has left me thinking about my own high school graduation. I remember the excitement of moving out, the opportunity to meet new friends EVERY SINGLE DAY, and the inevitable nervousness of starting a new chapter. It’s an exhilarating feeling. I get so excited for these teens that I get a chance to meet and talk with. And, to be honest, I do get a bit of envy – who wouldn’t want to go back in time for a bit a relive their college “glory days?” But I’ve been there and done that and I’m 100% positive that I really like my stage of life now. Besides, I think I have PTSD from waiting tables all through college (who else has server nightmares?).
Congratulations to the Class of 2014 and to Mr. Sam – I am thrilled for your future!
