Robert was the first of my Class of 2018 Seniors to have his session this season. I really didn’t expect him to be to excited or want anything crazy. Anyone that knows Robert, knows that just isn’t his style.
I was pleasantly surprised to find Robert was very cooperative and willing to do what was asked. He even brought along his Varsity jacket in the 85 degree weather, never complaining once about the heat. This made not only me happy, but his mother as well. You see Robert is a very sports oriented guy, especially when it comes to Soccer and Swimming. As you can see on his arm, his Swim team has won their Sectionals just a few times. What you can’t tell is that Robert has been one of the members of their team that made States! Having this included in his session was a great way to capture a big part of who Robert is. I think we were all happy that it wasn’t too hot so we could still capture it.
If you aren’t from Avon you won’t notice that the three locations we visited are all apart of our small town. While close together they were still able to give Robert and his family different looks to their gallery all while representing the place that Robert grew up and where he learned how to play the sports he is now so passionate about.
It was an honor to be a part of this milestone with Robert and his family. I hope that Senior year is amazing and I wish him all the luck in this next journey!
So many interests and only so much time! 😉 Tap dancing, graffiti, hippy love (with a splash of duck lips of course) how can one can go wrong? You can’t look at a photo of Miss L and not smile, or laugh just because this gal is nothing but a big ball of fun. This session doesn’t even begin to cover the things she is interested and very passionate about, she is more than willing to have a conversation about all the things she loves and make you forget that she isn’t even in High School yet!
I have to say as well that while Miss L has a wide variety of interests, she also has a mature sense of the world. While I had the pleasure of spending time with her we not only talked about random preteen topics, but also current events and concerns she had in general of the world she was growing up in. It isn’t often I get to spend time with a tween who is so honest and open about their concern for others. I am not saying that I know a bunch of selfish kids, please don’t misunderstand! However, it seems in the world today, it isn’t the “cool” thing at a young age to openly express boldly what you believe is wrong, dangerous or scary. I found it very promising that Miss L had no fear in doing so. I believe this one will leave her mark on our world, it is just a matter of time!
This year the Varsity Lacrosse team at Avon has a very young crew. Minus the 2 Juniors the team is made up of Freshman & Sophomores. While this to some may seem crazy, it also means that if they stay together their future could be a great one in the next few seasons! The Future is key! Go Braves!
When it’s not terribly freezing out but it is still beautifully winter whatever are you to do? Go out and play of course! Miss E and I had a blast at Mendon Ponds playing in the snow, drinking cocoa and visiting with all the local wildlife. What you can’t see in some of these photos is all the deer that decided to come out and see just what she was up to! I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed the adventure!
Meet Miss E! She was the lucky winner of a Winter Session that seemed to never come. 😉 Mother Nature apparently had plans on holding out the snow on us until the last minute. FINALLY we had some this past weekend and took full advantage. You have probably seen Miss E in the Swimming and Volleyball posts-I have caught her a few times in her sport activities. This time I had the chance for a little one on one portrait work. It was only 16 degrees and a bit windy, but totally worth it- don’t you think?
I recently stopped into a few of the Lava girls Volleyball Tournaments. These girls are awesome! They were really fun to watch, not just in their skill but their enjoyment of each other. Here is just a few shots of some of the games. I will definitely need to go back again!
Not too many girls would voluntarily go out adventuring into the city- but this girl was up for it. We may have choose a rainy and rather windy afternoon but we made it to all the spots on our list-but more! We even had a coffee house included in that list. If you are ever in the Rochester, NY area you MUST stop in to Java’s. The BEST cupcakes and lattes your taste buds could ever ask for.
You may recognize Syd from a few posts back, she joined me on a Best Friend Session. So if you think she looks familiar- that may be why! Or maybe you noticed her in our swimming photos- she is one of our few girls that swim with the boys and have to meet their times. Yes, she is pretty awesome! I am sure you will see here showing up here again! 🙂
