It’s funny. I’ve been photographing high school seniors for more years than I can remember and almost every parent pauses to catch their breath when they see the final images. In their mind, they still see the cute little 5 year old heading off to their first day of school with a fistful of pencils and a brand-new backpack.
Then they pause and say “they grow up way too quickly.”
Even though both of my sons are grown and past the senior portrait stage, the feeling never really goes away. Last weekend, Kirsten and I had the pleasure of photographing my youngest son, Joseph, and his fiancee Taylor. Both graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth this past spring and are now planning a wedding for next April.
As you can see, these two are a really great couple and are awesome together. It’s exciting to think about welcoming a new member into the family. (It may even be more exciting to attend a wedding and not worry about bringing my camera!)
Needless to say, we’re all very pleased and excited for them both.
Still, they grow up way too quickly.
