When your Nana is a photographer, well, she takes your senior portraits. And that’s just what I did on a warm afternoon last November with my grandson, Patrick. I didn’t want to show them to you all until Christmas gifts had been printed and distributed but now that everyone has seen them, well, you can, too.
But first, how about a little trip back in time to January 2008?
I distinctly remember, during this photoshoot of the sweater I had just knit for him, saying, “just think, buddy, before you know it we’ll be taking your senior photos.” And here we are, seemingly in the blink of an eye.
I might be a tad prejudiced but he sure is handsome. And not only that he’s also a fine young man. He’s thoughtful and kind, he’s grateful and helpful, he loves his family and he’s ready to take on whatever the world has to offer.
I can’t wait to see what comes next for him. I’d just like it to slow down a bit so that we can savor these moments together.
