Can we just take a moment to appreciate how docile Ohio's winter weather has been this year?! I'm a fan. I know we didn't get a white Christmas, but I'm more than okay with that when we get the occasional sixty degree day in December. *cue angels singing* I'm sure the snow will show up eventually, so I'm enjoying this while it lasts! ;)
Today on the blog are Justin's senior photos! Over the last few years, I've had the privilege of photographing Justin's older brothers' senior photos when they graduated, so when Mary (his mother) called to schedule Justin's session, I was delighted.
Justin was loads of fun to have in front of my camera. He has an easy smile, a fun personality, and there is an air of genuine kindness about him. All of these factors made for a brilliant afternoon of photographing this mile marker in his life.
Justin carries himself with confidence and ease. I love the photo above because his comfortable confidence feels tangible.
Justin and his sweet mother at the session! (It's tradition to get a photo of her with graduating son!)
So fun to spend the afternoon with you guys! Justin, congrats on your final year of high school!
Hey there! I'm Deborah Grace, and this little space you've stumbled into is a peek into my world, and into the world of those who've allowed me into their stories . I'm a photographer, an artist, a storyteller, and a dreamer. I adore the way photography has afforded me the opportunity to glimpse into people's stories. People are beautiful, imperfect, messy and wonderful. I think most times we just need to know that we're doing okay at this life thing. That's why I take photos. I think people often miss the beauty of their own stories because they're in the middle of them. I think my lens is basically just a gift God put in my hands to help others see how wonderful they really are, and that their stories matter. I always feel like the lucky one because I am. Getting to hear your messy, imperfect, hilarious, one-of-a-kind adventure-of-a-story never fails to convince me that in spite of everything, God is making something really beautiful out of all of us. And that inspires my socks off every time. So yes. I'm the lucky one who gets an in to the beautiful stories that people are. I love new friends so drop me a line if you'd like to connect. -xoxo
