Travelled home to South Carolina for his senior pics because…
I WAS HIS FIRST BABYSITTER!! Mom reminded me of this little fact in the middle of the session. I was 16… we think. So I’ve known this fam for a while. We did the math..trust me!
Mom & Dad were active in our youth group and they brought baby Ben to Wednesday nights even as an infant. And then they trusted me with their sweet babe! It’s a bit more moving now as an adult with my own babies.
Baby Ben is now a graduating senior. We did a combo session Downtown Summerville and at Azalea Park just a few blocks down.
We got up stupid early, which means I REALLY like these guys! We started at 8am before too many people were out.. but it was a Saturday and the Farmer’s Market was open. Ha!
The east coast is opening a whole new world for me. In Okinawa, the sun was up at 5:30AM! I don’t want to be out that early, and I won’t want my people getting their crew photo ready at 3am. No. Thank You.
But 8? Doable.
Oh! And we added his friends at the end of the session… must check those out below!
I find joy in chaos. The louder, the better!
