Francesca {Graduating Class of 2018}

Way back in the early 2000s, I had Francesca in my first-grade classroom.  She was a sweet, kind, funny, adorable and smart little girl.  In the past 10 years, she has stayed all of those things, except scratch that little girl comment, as she has become a beautiful young woman.  Francesca is graduating from high school this year and I don’t know how she has changed so much, and her mother, my friend Paula, and I look exactly as we did back then!

We drove down to a Connecticut beach one summer evening.  When we got to the beach, Francesca told me about her outfits.  I got more and more excited as she explained each one.   She really chose some perfect outfits for her senior portraits!  I was most excited to have her in some of her dance attire.

Francesca did an amazing job!  There was not a pose or a look that she could not give me.  And then, in her dancing dresses, I could not believe what she could do.  This girl can dance!  I guess that’s what happens when you’ve taken lessons for your entire life!

Francesca, I am truly honored that you asked me to take your senior portraits.  You have turned into such a beautiful young lady and I wish you all the success in the world as you head to college and beyond.  Please keep in touch with your favorite teacher of all time!
