I remember (12 very long years ago) when I was graduating from high school. It was such an exciting time. I’d been with the same people for 13 years and was ready for a change. Something new. Something exciting. It was a little scary leaving old friends and making new ones. Leaving childhood and becoming an adult. But, it was really one of the best times of my life. So much to look forward to and so much promise lay ahead.
I shot my very first senior session with twins Aubrey and Kailey. I had so much fun getting to know these two very kind, smart, funny, and beautiful young women. Hanging out with them brought me back to when I was graduating. You can see the excitement in their faces and anticipation of what’s to come. We talked about Prom and graduation luncheons and boyfriends. Oh, to be young again!
I always wanted a twin sister (I was a Sweet Valley Twins junky when I was little!) or at least a sister. I love how they are twins, but they are so different. I had no problem telling them apart. They did tell me that they switched classes once. But when Aubrey failed one of Kailey’s tests they decided that switching probably wasn’t a very good idea!
I asked Jo, Aubrey and Kailey’s mom, to join in on some of the pictures. She’s obviously very close with her girls and is so proud of them. It was evident in the way she wrote about them in her emails to me. I can imagine this is such a bittersweet time for her!
Thank you, Aubrey and Kailey, for letting me document this special time in your lives! I really had a great time with you girls! I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for you. I’m sure it’s nothing but great things! Happy Graduation! Here’s your slideshow!
