When you're in school, time goes by ridiculously slow. Everyone tells you it'll be over before you know it, but that feels like something people just have to tell you. Studying, tests, more tests, papers. I used to get so tired of holding my pen/pencil all day. Do kids these days even write by hand anymore, or is everything typed? Ugh, getting old if I'm using the "kids these days" lines.
This graduation shoot was a special one. My youngest cousin is graduating from high school. Officially marking the fact that all of us cousins are actually grownups. Really doesn't feel like it. But apparently, that's the truth!
I met over at my relatives house, and within a few minutes, had the Jeep loaded up and on our way. First stop was an abandoned trestle area. My aunt and my big puppy Gus, an Italian Mastiff, looked on as I snapped away. After finishing at that spot, we swooped up another cousin from work, and headed over to the coast for the remainder of pictures.
I'm only going to share a few here so that I don't ruin the surprise of which photos she'll be using in her graduation ceremony! I really love how they turned out. And seriously. How. is. she. grown. up.
How are any of us grown up!?
