At the beginning of this week, I had two lovely girls in middle school.
On Thursday evening, one of them put on her first ever grown-up fancy dress, let me style her hair and put make up on her face, and put high heeled shoes on to go to the last dance of the year at school.
And of course.... the shot she likes best:
On Friday, I watched her walk across the stage -- to receive the official certificate saying she's been promoted from Middle School to High School. I tried valiantly to photograph that. This was as good as I could get.
She was all done by then. (what, you want to see the stage shot? it's really bad....
That's the best of three tries.
So now, I have a High Schooler in my home. Scary thought that.
