Unexpected bonus to this whole photography gig: Sometimes, when you get asked to take senior portraits, those seniors were students of yours when they were in third grade.
I can still remember their little 8-year-old faces asking for help with math problems and sharing stories they wrote. Ten years goes by fast.
Other times, a senior you’ve known since before they were born comes to you and asks you to take not only her portraits, but her best friend’s as well. Hooray!
