Wise beyond her years, the stories her mom has shared with me of this beautiful girl are etched into my brain. So much so, that I often make her retell the best of them to other friends. Like the tales of her as mom’s little sidekick through law school, or the mental picture of her standing in front of her closet as a preschooler agonizing over just the right dress to meet a very important family member for the first time. Or seeing her sitting there small as can be in her mom’s office chair working on a PowerPoint presentation for “Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day.”
As beautiful inside as she is out – that confidence and maturity comes shining through. And I know, these few stories that I have been privileged to hear recounted and recount myself, are just the tip of the iceberg in this incredible journal that will one day be her life.
As much as I was told many years ago “you need to specialize to have a successful photography career these days,” as much as I truly love the little people, I’m so glad I listened to my intuition and didn’t lock myself into shooting only newborns and small children.
If I had, I would have missed gorgeous, creative, colorful moments like these. Good luck to you Miss Maggie – although I’m 100 percent sure you won’t need it!
Enjoy some of my favorites from Maggie’s high school senior photography session and watch the blog for another “I can’t believe she’s already graduating” senior story tomorrow.
