To the Class of 2020 - Charlotte

I really feel for the graduating class of 2020. They've seen their senior year upended as they remain cloistered at home, unable to savor those last events of high school or college. I know they are resilient and will make the best out of this tumultuous time, using their creativity to celebrate these significant milestones. Over the month of May, I'll highlight photos I've taken of the Class of 2020.

As photography serves as a creative outlet for me, I only hold portrait sessions for friends. This year I photographed four high school seniors starting with Charlotte, the youngest daughter of my friend, Heather. Heather led our neighborhood Book / Wine club until she and her family moved to Michigan. Even with the distance between us, we all remain good friends - Heather still visits once or twice a year, and she invites us yearly to a weekend retreat at their lake house. The photos from this shoot were taken at the lake house in July 2019.

I also took photos of their family prior to the move in 2013. So I went through my photo history and found this photo of little Charlotte, maybe 11 or 12 years old.


How much they change in a few short years (but the smile is still the same):

This one is a favorite of mine.

The slouchy, casual, happy go lucky Charlotte

Of course there needs to be a serious, pouty look.

Charlotte plans to attend Michigan State University in the fall. We congratulate her on her accomplishments in high school and wish her the best in college!
