Today Trinity and Sierra graduated from high school! They both got lots of whoops and hollers as they walked across the stage, then went out to Sierra’s mom’s house out of town to hang out with family to celebrate.
Over the past couple weeks I’ve done some rough edits with this story. After talking with a bunch of editors, friends and photographers, I decided to keep an eye out for story telling details and some sense of the outside world. Today I was able to grab a detail I really liked that and also a shot with some family involved. I did get a photo with Trinity talking to some older women (grandmas), but it just didn’t have enough ‘umph.’
It’s been so extremely rewarding to be able to follow the two of them around for the past 6 months. I’ll only have another one or two trips out to Macon before I head out for Denver this summer, and I couldn’t thank the two of them, and their family and friends, enough for teaching me the value of long form story telling and the deep and meaningful relationships that can stem from them. I’m proud of both of you and you have taught me so much. Thank you.
Here are the two photos I mentioned and some extras I liked from the day.
Sierra got a giant blanket from her grandma covered in pictures of herself as she grew up. ^^^
Thanks for looking!
