Dear Moms of Middle School aged kids,

In just a few years, your middle school aged child will be entering their senior year of high school—and let me just tell you, these years will fly by faster than you can imagine. You will go through all of the milestone events of the year with disbelief, pride and a bit of anxiety for the future.

You will schedule senior portraits and college visits, order cap and gown, send out graduation invitations and plan a perfect open house. Whether you have been a serious scrapbooker or just a loyal cell phone picture shooter, you will compile school pictures, vacation pictures and sports pictures into some kind of wonderful memory board to display at the party.

But that is still a few years away. Today, you have a middle schooler. You probably have a collection of appropriate baby milestone photos, delightful toddler images and those awkward stages of elementary school. But the young teen you see today is going to change a lot over the next few years. Braces will come and go, hairstyles and makeup will become more important, sports and activities they participate in now, may not even be important to your graduating senior.

Take the time now to capture who they are today. You won’t get this back, as the song goes, “You’re Going to Miss This;” and take it from me—you are!

I can say all this because this has been a year of milestones in the lives of my kids. High school graduation for one and off to college in the fall—College graduation for the other and a wedding. I can’t go back—but I have the photos to help me relive those days.Will you?

Call now and set up a session—expect it to last about 30 minutes and include both indoor and outdoor portraits. Feel free to bring an outfit change and any props that might help tell your teen’s story! We’ll include a free 8×12 metallic print— Vicki
