High School Seniors

Such a wonderful time in the life of an 18 year old. So many dreams and ideas are swirling around in their head. The sky is the limit and they are at the starting point. Funny how they are so sure about going to college and living on their "own" but really don't know where they are going nor what they are going to college for. I think that is okay. When I was a HS Science teacher I saw so many kids go to college and declare a major that mom or dad wanted and the kid did not enjoy nor embrace their hard work. Instead they became mixed up in the wrong crowd and not to savy of grades. Poor mom's and dad's....checks to higher ed down the drain. It is a lesson to put in your back pocket, never do what someone else thinks you should do, unless your own heart is in it (it seems to work out better that way).

This young man knows he is headed to college. On the day of this shoot, it started out as a family (of eleven) photoshoot. But turned out that he thought these images could be his "senior pictures". I was glad to deliver. He is from California and was on a short visit here in San Antonio with his family. Their only agenda in Texas on this warm sun soaked day was to go to church and to spend an afternoon with me and my camera. I am so blessed to have this California and Utah and Ft. Hood family as newly found friends. Each one of them are super gorgeous inside and out. Thanks for a great time and a warming of my soul.

And for my blogging friends.... I will post more of their images soon.
