Spring is in the air, and for the Northeast Florida area schools, that means it's time for prom! I have never experienced a prom as an attendee (I grew up in another country that doesn't have things like dances) or as a parent (my children are 6 and 9.) When a dear friend asked me if I could record the preparations for her daughter's Senior Prom, I jumped at the chance.
I have worked with Maci, who is one of my favorite young people, a few times previously. We had a couple of fun photo shoots on Talbot Island's Blackrock Beach for Senior Photos, as well as a "girlfriends" shoot here on Amelia Island. I always enjoy working with her and her lovely friends, they are wonderful examples to us all. It was truly an honor to capture a slice of her special event, which began at her friend's house:
The fun continued at a local golf course, where a large group of Seniors and their dates met up for one of the largest photo ops I have ever seen. It was so amazing to see the proud parents and family members with their soon-to-be-graduates, looking so very grown up in their formal attire. It was an astoundingly windy day, but that only added to the giddy exuberance of the atmosphere.
These young ladies are classic beauties, inside and out.
Good luck, class of 2016!
