Alli | Sugarcreek Metropark | Dayton Senior Photography

“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” – Dr. Seuss

When I first met Alli, my first thought was how lucky we all are to be able to have someone like her in our midst. This gorgeous senior is beautiful on the outside and inside. She is very sweet, kind and thoughtful. Her compassion towards others is immediately noticed and adored.

Alli wanted a natural, creek like setting for her senior portraits, which of course I was excited about. Being able to capture these moments for Alli was a true pleasure because she was genuinely excited for her session.  Spending two hours with this family was so easy and relaxed. How lucky am I that I get to call this my job!

Her relationship with her mom, Tara, was something I hope my girls will have with me one day. She listens and trusts her mother’s wisdom. It made my heart so happy to see that. Her sweet best friend came along for moral support, so I wanted to include her in a few photos at the end. Photographs they will cherish for years to come of their last year in high school…side by side.

During this photoshoot, I was chatting with Alli’s mom and we were talking about school. Her oldest is graduating high school, while my oldest started preschool this year. She couldn’t believe she had a senior and I can understand the feeling. I know my daughter is still very young, but it’s hard not to think that this is the beginning of the end. The end of the days where we can do whatever we choose each morning. In a few short years, she’ll be in kindergarten and I’m sure I will understand full well how Tara was feeling because just like that they’re no longer 5, but 18 and ready to experience the big, beautiful thing we call our world.

Good luck, Alli! I can’t wait to see what lies ahead for you. You can truly be anyone you want to be!
