I did this shoot in the same afternoon as the other 2 grads, and I love how different they were. We tried to find some locations to suit her retro dress, and I played with some vintage processing for fun. She was so relaxed in front of the camera and we got some great shots.
Pretty sure graduation marks one of the most exciting times of our lives. At least, it was for me anyway. All of a sudden, your world as you know it comes to an end. You’ve been doing the same thing for the last 13 years and that was pretty much because your parents made you do it, and let’s be honest, you really should complete high school in this day and age… There you sit, pondering, what in the world do I do now? Some people have a really concrete idea of what they want to be and where they’re going to go after grad. Some people don’t. But regardless of ambition, intellect, or desire, your life just changed. And I think it’s awesome. I want to wish these 3 fabulous girls the best of luck as they pursue the next chapter of their lives.
Can you say GORGE?? (That would be gorgeous, for people like my mom…)
And Kathleen channeling a little Audrey Hepburn:
You girls are beautiful, and I can’t wait to show you more! Oh yah, there’ll be more.
Happy Canada all!!
Blake has always been a good sleeper. If he wanted to sleep, it didn’t matter where he was, how loud it was, or when it was, he could crash. Well, he’s 2.5 now, and still napping for 3 hours in the afternoon. Every day. And because of that, he’s also staying up until 10pm. Every day. It used to be 8:30 – 9:00 ish, which didn’t really bother me. He was always really good, and we were up anyway. Now that it’s like, 10pm or later, it kinda starts to cut into my bedtime occasionally. me no likey. So, I thought it would be a good idea to start shortening those naps. What we’ve ended up with, is an all day crabby 2.5 year old, that I have to wake up from a nap (every day), that goes to bed at 7:30 – 8ish, but doesn’t sleep until 9 – 9:30ish!! Mama mia. I’m hoping it will just take a while for him to get used to it… Well, I’m hoping he’ll get used to it in the next 4 days, because we’re going camping next week, and I just want a happy toddler!! Selfish ain’t it? I’m hoping that my very intelligent friend who informed me that all that sun and fresh air will make him crash early will be right. Anyway, here are some snaps old and new of my little man who will literally sleep anywhere.

Sigh, I don’t know what it is about a sleeping baby. But I love it. And I hope it comes back to us soon.
