With their Senior year coming to an end, I decided to do one last shoot with my 2018 Model Team. This was sort of like their ‘send off’ shoot, and a way for me to get in one last official good-bye. These girls are scattering off all across the state in the fall, so I wanted them to be able to have pictures with their friends and also representing the college they will attend starting in August.
There’s no better place to gather right now than at the new coffee shop in town, Monticello Coffee Company. This place is amazing. Not only is the inside completely remodeled from what the former building used to be, but their hot/cold drink & food menu is top-notch. There’s no need to drive all the way to Little Rock for one of those ‘big name’ coffee drinks when you can hop right over to Monticello and have one locally. Seriously, if you haven’t tried them, you must….immediately.
SO- this group of amazing girls came glammed up with their future college t-shirt on and we had a blast. They sipped on their homemade lemonade drinks and lounged all around the shop. I loved hearing their excitement about all of the upcoming changes in their life. If there’s ever been anyone prepared and ready for change, it’s these girls. Of course, when I asked what they look forward to most after graduation, you can just about guess what they said…….
I had so many amazing seniors last year that I was blessed to get to know and to photograph. If I could share with them one piece of advice that they can carry throughout their life from here on out, it would be 100% to pray and to trust. Whenever a difficult decision arrives and you don’t know what path to take, PRAY for God’s guidance. He will always answer, in His perfect timing. If/Whenever that outcome isn’t necessarily what you had hoped and prayed for, TRUST that God’s plan is perfect and things always work out in the end.
I love each and every one of ‘my seniors’, and I’ll miss seeing them around this fall. I hope they always remember me and the fun we had at their sessions. My ultimate goal with every senior is to make their session an experience they will never forget, and to give them 110% in everything I do. I pray they felt that.
CLASS OF 2018, HERE’S TO AN AMAZING FUTURE!!
