As a portrait photographer, it has been a great pleasure to capture the smiling faces of young and old alike. Each session has always been unique, providing a glimpse into the personality of the subject. Sharing an enjoyable session together to get the perfect shots, each person making an imprint on my life as I memorialize a special moment in theirs.
So I often wonder, where are they now? Who did they grow up to become? I look back at senior photos, when the world and its myriad experiences and possibilities lay ahead, and wonder what impact the beautiful, smiling person in that portrait may have contributed to the world. Did they follow their dreams? Achieve their goals? Many of the professionals we interact with daily once had their portrait snapped. Are they the nurse, accountant, artist, foreman, fireman, yoga instructor?
I am happy to have captured a precious moment in their lives. To have memorialized a smile, a dimple, a twinkle in their eye.
