I have, sadly, decided it's too stressful to continue taking pictures professionally.
So I have started saying "no, I'm sorry, I can't."
My last Senior, besides Katie, is Lady Cranley's daughter.
(She is Lady Cranley because Patrick can NOT remember her name.)
I took Lady Cranely's son's pictures a few years ago and she was so easy to work with...
easy going and appreciative...
and her daughter is a sweetie....so I said yes...but I knew this would be the last one.
Here are a few pictures of Julianna....
and following are some pictures I shot of Katie in Chicago.
What a lovely girl. Doesn't she look like she is from a different time?
Katie likes the sideways backpack shots. I do too.
The last picture is one of my faves.
We almost forgot the lions in front of the Art Institute in Chicago....
When I remembered it was 1:00.
The worst time to take pictures.
But I like the pictures despite the huge blown out areas.
We may take a few more in other locations...or not.
Her pictures are due in a few weeks for the yearbook.
Hey not fini.
When I first signed up for professional printing I had to check the kinds of pictures I would be taking.
I checked children, families, head shots,
and there was a box for Seniors...
and I thought, well....I'll be happy to take pictures of old people.
So I checked that box too.
