Running After Dreams

I’ve been thinking of my high school senior portrait clients a lot lately—especially Caroline. With back to school right around the corner, I know my kids will soon be seeing familiar faces and places.  But Caroline will be off on a whole new adventure as she steps into college life for the first time.  I imagine a lot of changes in store for Caroline.   I’m excited for her as she continues to stretch to reach her great, big ambitions.

Click above to see Caroline’s shoot highlights and personal reflections in her very own custom magazine.

The thing about Caroline, is that you know right down to your boots, that she’s gonna make the most of wherever life takes her.

This is the girl who wakes up every morning while her classmates are snoozing to run, to train, to dream.

She’s got the perfect combination of dogged determination and sky—high ambition.  To back it all up, she’s got a loving family and big faith.  See all those medals behind her?  This girl’s got commitment!

Without the makeup, the glam, the glitter, Caroline’s just the sweetest girl next door.  She has a fun sense of humor, conviction that anything is possible, and an optimistic outlook.

Another thing that really inspires me about Caroline is how connected she is with her family.

Her dad, Paul talked about how great it was to see Caroline running track over the years.  He beams when he talks about her accomplishments.  As her coach, he was happy to give me pointers about what I should be looking for to make the track shoot great.  (Go, Sharks!)

Meanwhile, Mom-of-the-year award goes to Julie for planning this shoot in the first place.  When scheduling her Beauty shoot, Julie knew immediately that she wanted to share the day of pampering with her daughter.

You can see how they really shined!

Caroline, as your new life chapters unfold, I hope you’ll bring your spunk, your tenacity, and your upbeat attitude to every challenge that meets you.  Thanks for teaching me to keep on pushing… no excuses.

Keep on running after your dreams, girl!  You’ve got this!

Enjoy every minute of your college adventure!
