In addition to being an awesome young woman, Isabella … or Izzy as she’s known is also a dancer.
So I knew that we would get some great pictures of her grace and beautiful poses …. and we did !
Norwood High School in Norwood MA presents Sleeping Beauty and The Spinner. The school is presenting the one act play at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe where they will have haggis … maybe
I think that the kids know that their parents may be a bit sad as they see them each graduate from high school, then college, get married and start their own families.
What better gift than to stop time, for that brief moment and capture them all at this stage in their lives.
I was so honored recently to do this session with the Smiths.
We met at the studio and did the session by the pond and near a few of the buildings.
And a special thanks to them for letting me add my “I’ll kick your butt” attitude posing … HA! You guys nailed it!
I spent many years living in Norwood MA. And each year we would go “up town” to watch the Memorial Day parade which starts at one of the town’s cemeteries and ends at another.
Then all of the town would spend some time together in some ceremonies to remember those who have died in the service of our country.
I admit that I know much less about history that I think I do. And history is personal and for some – it hurts to remember. But we must continue to tell the story – each year. Or it will fade and be forgotten.
I forget too often that a happy life is more important than a wealthy life. So, thanks for the normal, routine, boring, slow, “small town” days – they are such a blessing. I’m already looking forward to July 4th – just another “boring” day in a small town.
The weather was just perfect for a walk through Boston’s Public Gardens . All the time I’m on a mission to find a beautiful shady place to take a few pictures. And it seemed that everywhere we stopped was perfect.
Even I think these are breathtaking, but then LOVE is !
Think about it … for the senior it’s a mix of terror – anticipation – happiness – fear – fear …
And for the parents … happiness – pride – sadness – sadness … fear … fear
I know I repeat my self .. HA!
For me – it is a time to capture this awesome time in their lives when they are teenagers on the verge of being adults. There is so much magic in their eyes and I just love it.
