Already graduated from high school. Already directed some plays. Barista who knows how to mix up any coffee or tea you need Already has a clear idea of what she wants for her future (doula). Already taking college courses. Are you as impressed as I am with all that Chloe has already accomplished by age sixteen? Talk about driven!
Chloe is an amazing girl with a bright future! We had such a fun time with her mom and younger sister joining us on her senior picture session in an area where she has spent a lot of time and has a lot of memories. We walked around downtown and then drove for some more country-like photos in nearby Lavon. (Did I mention that she also rides horses?!) This girl can do it all!
When we got to Lavon, we were so blessed with our timing. I knew I wanted to take photos of her in front of some gorgeous weathered turquoise doors, and a kind man was outside of them. I asked permission and we shot some photos and then when we finished he said they were about to renovate and change out the doors. “NOOOOO!” I screeched! These are the perfect doors for pictures! I guess since it’s his building he can do what he wants! Ha! But the photographer in me gets so sad when I lose my backdrops!
Speaking of losing backdrops, the barn we photographed Chloe in front of is slated to be torn down. 🙁 This will be the third barn in my area within a year. It makes me want to cry! Not just because I love the way barns look in photographs, but I also hate that a piece of history is being removed. Uh, progress! 🙂
