Leaving the Nest


There's always something a little bittersweet about doing senior portraits. It's an exciting time. So many changes and plans to be excited for. A fresh new future just waiting to be explored. But the mom in me sympathizes with the realization that the child is becoming an adult and they are moving on. Not leaving you behind, because you know they'll come back for food and laundry, but exploring the boundaries and opportunities they choose.

Z. is blessed with an older sister who has helped to forge the path. He wants to study Physics (Wow!). I was so impressed with his confidence and ability with just being himself. He was relaxed, friendly and polite. It was wonderful to see the relationship between him and his mom. I'm sure there are big things waiting ahead for him.
