Bye-bye, baby


Somewhere in Santa Ana
Santa Ana, California
14 November 2014

We did something different for the daughter's senior portrait and hired a photographer to do a session with her. She wanted professional headshots in addition to her senior portrait and for a kid who really doesn't ask for much, it seemed like a nice thing.

A makeup artist came in and did her hair and make up. Then, because we are a bunch who spend a lot of time in the great out of doors, the photographer decided that we would head outside for the shoot. The daughter enjoyed the experience more than she thought, and the spouse and I trailed along, enjoying a place we'd never seen before. I spent a lot of the time kicking myself for not bringing my good camera.

The photographer showed us some of the shots she'd gotten, and the daughter looked gorgeous. She is, of course, though she has no clue. Which is fine.

She is stressing over classes and college applications. Two applications in and 5 to go.

But she got her first acceptance today, which is a huge relief to her.

My baby is on her way.

Tech stuff: Taken with my iPhone4.
