As I was working to order announcements for my clients, my stress level was rising because I hadn’t gotten around to taking my own daughter’s senior portraits. Here we are 6 weeks before graduation and we hadn’t done pictures.
I had visions of doing my daughter’s portraits while we were in Seattle this past summer. It would have been nostalgic. Emory spent eleven years of her life in the Seattle area. We had a trip planned. I was taking other senior portraits, but as our trip went on, my lack of a specific plan caused it not to happen. Well, we got ONE picture.
Even with the pictures we just took, she didn’t get the experience I offer my clients. It was last minute. It was rushed. I didn’t take the time that I should have taken. It is a little like the old saying “the cobbler’s kids have no shoes.” All too often we put our own after our clients, no matter our industry.
Emory is headed off to UT-Dallas next fall where she is hoping to double major in Computer Science and Arts and Technology and later pursue a career in animation.
We ended her session with ice cream. She might be months away from heading off to college, but in some ways, she will always be my little girl.
