I love photographing people in places that have meaning. I met Sara and her family at her grandparent's home just outside of St. Louis, and the two of us explored their property together.
One thing that I love about photographing seniors is the glimpse you get at the childlike spirit they are leaving behind and the adult they are becoming. You see the expressions their parents have seen since they grew up and also can see the maturity they have growing in them.
I have no doubt that Sara's parents are thrilled to see both and are proud of their daughter as she prepares to graduate high school.
