Determined | Senior Portraits

I was so honored to do these senior portraits. Not just because she’s extremely talented, smart and funny, but because she’s my little sister. I was so excited when she asked me over the phone. See, Erin is 16 years younger than I am. Besides the one summer I lived with my dad between my second and third year of college, we’ve always lived at least 2 states apart. I was there the day Erin was born in Baltimore’s John Hopkins Hospital and I remember seeing her through the glass window. While we never lived close, I’ve watched her grow up, facing more challenges than the average child, and am constantly inspired by her strength and determination. In fact, it was her determination that pushed me to pursue photography as a career.

This year she is a senior. She is the president of the Orchestra where she plays violin and takes piano lessons outside of school. She is a member of the Science Olympiad as well as holding the treasurer chair of the Art Team. In the summer, Erin looks forward to camp in Canada and a visit from her big sister. đŸ˜‰ Her dream is to be in the medical field, possibly pre-med or medical research, but doesn’t want to rule anything out just yet. Watch out world, here she comes!

There is no doubt she will do great things and her will-power will carry her through to whatever she dreams. I’m certainly excited to watch it all happen. Here are some of her senior portraits from our session together.
