Right now, you may be thinking to yourself, “Josh and Kelley, what are you thinking? August is a weird time for a senior session… Didn’t school just start?” And, if we were discussing a Phoenix senior, you would be right.
If she lived in Phoenix, this girl would be busy running around buying school supplies, finishing up the summer reading that she had put off for almost three months, and trying to figure out her new class schedule.
This little lady does not, however, live in Phoenix. Nope, she lives in my (Kelley’s) beautiful home state of Washington. More than that, she lives in what used to be my home.
Radiant readers, followers, and fans, meet my sweetest and littlest sister Brianna.
Schools in Washington don’t start back up until September, so Brianna still has a few more glorious weeks of summer. Lucky for me and Josh, she decided to spend one of those weeks with us here in Phoenix.
While she was here we had game nights, ate way too much junk food, poked fun at Josh for being a meat-eater who was officially outnumbered by vegetarians in his own home, researched college and scholarship applications, and hung out and shopped with our other sister and her kiddos (aka our super adorable nieces and nephew).
In the midst of all that, we decided it would be a perfect time for us to take Brianna’s senior photos. She had been talking to Josh and me about this for a while, and we thought it might be fun for her to trade in her normal pine tree backdrop for some palm trees, making her photos a little “different” and that much more special.
I’ve got to tell you, taking these photos was a little mind-blowing for me.
I swear that I was JUST getting excited about her first day of kindergarten and asking her to pose with her Powerpuff Girls backpack.
Yes Brianna, yes I DID just put that picture up on the Internet for the world to see. You can thank me later.
Powerpuff Girls aside, I love the snot out of this little sister of mine, and she’s definitely somebody that I’m proud to call family.
Best of luck on your senior year Brianna! Josh and I are super proud of you and we know you’ll do great!
