Sarah is a DEAR. I'm not the person in the world who knows her the best, but I'm glad to be amongst those who know her well enough to know this: she's silly. Like yelling like a monkey silly. She thinks deeply and critically. She's not afraid to cry, and definitely not afraid to laugh while she's crying. Smart? Yes. Driven? Yes. Self-aware? Quite.
This session was a trade-off, actually. I wrote a story for (and actually with--he helped!) my youngest brother a couple years ago, and as the story was very important to both of us, wanted to print him a copy as a "real book" for Christmas. I asked Sarah--a former student--if she'd illustrate the story for me as a trade off for her senior photos. I don't think either of us realized how much work she'd need to put into the illustrations, but the end result was incredible, and Anthony LOVES his book. I was thrilled to get to do these photos as a favor back for Sarah--and everything--truly everything--about this session was just a ton of fun.
