One of the distinct advantages of being a teacher as well as a photographer is that I get the chance to photograph some of my favorite students. In this case, Skylar is not only one of my former students, but she also happens to be the daughter of a good friend of mine. When Monique approached me with the idea of doing Skylar’s senior portraits, I think I might have argued the possibility because in my mind it was impossible that she could be old enough to be graduating from high school.
Well, now here we are. It’s 2016 and there’s no denying the fact Skylar is a senior. I am just so proud of the person she’s grown into. She is a genuine, kind, hard-working, and sarcastic (this is why I love her most) kiddo and I adore her. Not to mention she loves my boys, which is an added bonus because we get the best sitter in town! I am so excited about the future she’s working on. I would be remiss if I didn’t say I was a little bummed that she’s chosen FSU instead of UF, but I won’t hold that against her
