The first time I met Hannah, she was just a Freshman in the Taylor High School Color Guard. — You probably know the Color Guard as the kids with flags, rifles and streamers during football halftime performances. That’s only part of the story. After football season ends, these kids continue practicing and competing throughout the winter.
I absolutely love photographing official school groups like the CG because it gives me a chance to meet and get to know a little bit about these kids.
It may not be fair to say so, but I always have a few “favorites,” and Hannah was definitely one. I just always loved her sweet smile and spunky attitude — so I was thrilled when she came into the studio for her senior portraits.
After graduation Hannah will head east to her family’s “home country” where she will attend classes at Louisiana State University as a pre-med student, leaning toward pediatric medicine.
And I couldn’t help but dig out her freshman color guard pictures (below) … She is definitely the same sweet girl I met back in the fall of 2009… Just a little more grown up and college-ready.
