Prom 2014!

May 29, 2014

“I think prom is just about enjoying yourself.” -Victoria Justice


So, if you are a facebook follower, you might have caught the post a few weeks ago about my excitement for my niece’s prom… you guys, I’m a sucker for proms.  I LOVE them.  I went to prom three out of my four years in high school, and then when I worked down in Indy for a studio, we did prom photo’s at the dance for 7 or 8 proms a year.  It was marvelous.  I love the hair, the shoes, the make up, the fancy dinner, the dancing.  I love it ALL.

This past week I was reminiscing about my senior prom.  My hair stylist wove flowers into my hair, I had a friend do my make up, I added leaves and things to my dress, and then had another friend paint a flower on my arm, AND THEN, helped to spike my dates hair and tip it with pink to match my dress.  As I was thinking about it, I decided it makes TOTAL sense that I love photographing weddings.  Wedding’s are pretty much the grown up prom [or maybe prom is the teenagers wedding?].  The make up, the fancy dresses, the shoes, the hair, the photos, the nerves, the dancing… yes please!

So without further ado, I present to you my senior high school prom picture [one of many, I assure you]:


And of course, since I know most of you are here to see my beautiful niece and her friends, here they are!  Veronica, Isabela, and Josh!  You guys were all gorgeous/handsome!  Thanks for letting me be a part of it!
