Alex is a high school senior at West High and we lucked out this past week with not just the perfect timing for fall colors, but also a beautiful, crisp morning outside! He plays both football and baseball so we started the session at the high school and then went to Kent Park for the majority of the time. Alex says he’s pretty down-to-earth and I definitely got that vibe from him while I was photographing. He’s easy-going and we had a great time chatting. At one point, I commented to his mom that I just can’t quite wrap my head around having a senior in high school or her ability to just go outside for a walk by herself (haha) and she reminded me that time does go really quickly and it wasn’t so long ago that she was exactly where I am now. It was a good reminder for me to enjoy these moments with littles because, as I already know with my almost 6-year-old, it’s like a blink. Somehow the days can drag and the year is over.
Happy senior year, Alex!
