I love taking Family and High School Senior Sessions. One of the things I love most is seeing the kids and students grow up. It is so fun to watch when they are making that transition from toys to hobbies and new interests, then to adult careers and married lives.
A couple weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing one of my favorite families’ just-turned-teenage daughter.
Autumn is a sweet girl who is really growing and becoming such a responsible and beautiful young lady.
Autumn has a sweet sister relationship with the next oldest girl in her family (there are four girls in this one) and she
still enjoys playing dolls every now-and-again with her. In the transition between girlhood and womanhood is a delicate balance of being grown-up with out loosing our child-likeness.
One of her newer interests are drawing and as she spends time honing that skill is it really paying off.
Autumn is at the age where not only interests are changing, but this is the time where girls especially begin to choose who will be their best friend through the high school years (and possibly beyond). It will be the one (or two) girls they tend to spend the most time with outside their family members and the one who will come along side and encourage them to lift them up when perspective on life has been lost among the emotions and fears of maturing.
Autumn is second of six and well, as we saw earlier, the younger kids want to photo-bomb at least once.
Did I mention that I love this family? They make me laugh! Often!
While our photo-bomber got his moment, Autumn was focused on her love for baking! She is usually baking, or has just baked, anytime I come visit their home. It is a welcomed thing and she LOVES spending time doing this special hobby
(and I must say, she is really good at it – I sort of envy her….ha!)
We all know the cookie dough is better than the cookie…..it’s why we fight over who gets to lick the bowl.
I know her mama will agree with this…..Fact #5: Life Is Better With Freshly Baked Cookies.
Autumn, I am excited as you enter this new teen world and begin to explore all that God has for you and has placed in you!
