Graduation from our school was this evening, and I'm up late tonight going through the pictures I've taken. I'm the unofficial school photographer, and I took lots of pictures today, but this one really touched me. To me, this exemplifies Graduation.
I've known Caroline and her family since she was just a little girl. And I have the honor of calling her mother, Mary, my friend. Caroline is the last in her family to graduate from our school and now that it's come to an end, I think I understand how her mother must feel just by looking at this picture.
I'll miss so many of these seniors, but even more importantly, I'll miss the families they're attached to. Things change and time marches on. And this is the reason I love being behind a camera lens. I love capturing these moments and giving them as gifts to people I love.
