sixteen

I suppose my child turning SIXTEEN renders a blog post!!!!

I mean, how could a photographer mom not photograph her child on their 16th? 20 minutes? please?

Leading up to this day, has been a little emotional. Memories of my son & literally how fast it has gone.

I watched a 5th Grade Boys Basketball game this week, & had a flash back of when Conner was just starting out! It was like yesterday! Tears!

& today, sixteen!!! I couldn’t be more proud & honored that Conner is my son!!!

16 & just got his permit!!! Learning to drive! 16 & loves to run! Has enjoyed his second season of cross country.

16 & loves food, especially pizza bites. 16 & loves to bug his sisters. 16 & wants to be a photographer like his mom.

16 & is awesome! love you conner! happy birthday! thanks for letting me take your pics!
