Senior sessions continue through the photo studio this week. I simply can't believe I am working on the next Class of graduates, that are destined to have me crying in May watching them graduate! It's so worth the tears that are guaranteed to flow though! I absolutely love my job, and being able to watch the transformation of individuals over this crazy and exciting time of their life. There are a select group of Seniors selected each year, to help out in our little photo studio. I quickly found out that running a photography business single-handedly isn't for the faint of heart. Due to the amount of volunteering and community service that I am involved with, even in the surrounding towns, its a great opportunity for Seniors! They earn their senior portraits, get some community service under their belt, and have a blast seeing what zany ideas I am going to come up with next! I even try to make the painting, mopping, and even the reflector fun!
Just shy of one year ago today, Kenzee came thru the studio for a full session. Her father was really wanting to get caught up on a few years of missing getting portraits done. (Don't we ALL have that feeling at times?!) We had a blast during her session, even though the summer was warming up on us and tried to bake us once we stepped outside. That didn't stop her from relishing every minute in front of the lens.
During her reveal session, it was discovered that she would soon be a Senior. She was so relaxed in front of the camera, and was so outgoing, I just had to ask... "Would you like to be a Senior Rep for the studio next year"? She couldn't say "yes" fast enough!
Well lo and behold, the calendar called for the Class of 2016 to step in to action, and she was the first in the door here at the studio on Senior Night. Kenzee has already helped with a family session, and shared some ideas to alleviate a little stress off the planning for our annual Downtown Christmas event. This event requires months of design and prep work before Santa drops by to visit. I am lucky to have her helping out so much in the studio this year!
