on the day of emily’s senior photos, Amarillo had winds ranging from 31-48 miles per hour. um… that’s enough to blow my car off the road, so you can imagine the damper that we feared this would place on little miss Emily. but… she braved the wind… wait… the tornado simulation… and we went out photographing her senior photos. we were sneaky and inventive and stood still many times for a few seconds … or thirty … waiting for the wind to die down enough to snap a few shots.
i.was.not.disappointed. emily is … without question… without doubt ….gorgeous!!! she has the most amazing smile. and i never say that about people. (because i don’t understand that compliment) Emily is just flat out beautiful. it’s not even a matter of opinion.
so… let the flood of emily begin:i’ll tell you that to get the next shot, i had to let emily walk all over me. gah! this is high up on a concrete wall. so emily used me (and my back) to climb up on the wall. we thought it was hilarious. (or not) you might have had to be there..this is my favorite.emily: i still pretty much hate you and your legs. but deep down inside of me is someone who really really loves you and your smile. i feel like i have known you forever. i enjoyed our laughs. the craziness. and our stroll through the junkyard. thank you for keeping me in mind for these photos. i am truly appreciative of the opportunity and had SUCH a great time with you. you are so beautiful – inside and out. you have an amazing personality and spirit and i know that you will go far in the world. be you. always be you. you are a very gentle gift to all of us!
