We are sending off a generation that was born after September 2011, and didn’t have a graduation. Class of 2020 I have so much faith in you. You are resilient, strong, and will shine…
Smera’s Lifestyle Senior Session was one of my first socially distanced sessions since re-opening after a 10+ week Shelter in Place in San Jose, California. Not in a million years I would have dreamt of saying that. What a world we are living in!!! However, we made it work, and will continue to do so, with a mask, and with absence of hugs; yet we laughter, and emotion… I promise you!
Besides, her images turned out so amazing.. (they will be making an appearance in my soon to be updated teen portfolio, here) she was a trooper hiking to my beautiful spot for 500 meters or so. I am so proud of her, as I have seen her grown into an amazing, smart, gorgeous young woman. So many things coming her way, I am sure. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for you.
At the end, I want to congratulate the class of 2020 for making it through a pandemic, #blacklivesmatters protests, and an uncertain future fall starting college for a lot of you. Celebrations cancelled, absence of friends and friends contacts, and so much more…. yet, you are setting ground for great things in your future. Big hugs from me to you.. XOXO
