Graduating high school is a major milestone in a young person’s life. It’s closing a chapter on part of your life as a child, and starting a new one as an adult. You work hard for your grades, and your parents help to guide you to become a responsible adult and to make good choices. In this next phase in life, you get to choose and create your life path – it’s a pretty big deal!
Levi is a great young man! He’s smart and has a great sense of humor; he loves his Carolina Panthers and the outdoors. There are amazing things in store for him in the future! And as for mom and dad… their little boy has become a man. It’s bitter sweet, but they have done a WONDERFUL job raising such a great kid!
We ended up doing a double session over two days for Levi to hit up three awesome locations… I think this was more for mom to have as many keepsake images of her ‘baby boy’ all grown up. The locations were amazing, especially the farm that holds dear memories for their family as a whole. I had a great time with Levi capturing such beautiful images!
There are two gifts we should give our children; one is roots, and the other is wings.

Now we can officially celebrate autumn with pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin bread, apple butter, sweaters and boots!! I resisted wearing clothes too closely aligned with fall in the cool August and September months… I was holding out hope that maybe summer would finally show up to the party, but, nah… my superstitions made no difference.
So here we are, at the end of September (or August?? It feels the same), and now I can happily sport my fall apparel without wincing or feeling the onset of Seasonal Affective Disorder (and, yes, I’m still holding out hope for a stretch of Indian Summers!!!). Happy Fall, ya’ll!!
The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970 on many college campuses across the country. Earth Day events celebrate what is considered the birth of the modern environmental movement. The annual, national event is meant to raise awareness about Mother Nature’s health and the efforts made to protect it.
