8th grade

Humboldt County 8th Grade Portrait Session

 I an think of so many milestones in a child’s life that need to be documented.  From the first fresh days of your child’s newborn life all the way to their teary eyed High School graduation – there are a zillion moments in between that should be bottled up in a photograph and kept forever.  This is just one of them – but it’s a big one (at least I think it is).  8th Grade Graduation! Sometimes this Milestone might get a bit overlooked in life – at least the significance of it.  But I think it is one of the most important ones. 

They have just finished nine years of schooling. Yes. NINE YEARS. Kudos to you mama, for helping them make it through. That in itself is a pretty big deal. It is something to celebrate. They are taking the big leap from childhood and will be navigating the murky waters of high school. 

I believe 8th grade portraits shouldn't break the bank. I am offering limited edition sessions for the month of March. If you want more details, contact me on facebook at www.facebook.com/parkyspics or parkyspics@gmail.com 

This is the next step in your child’s journey into their teens and even closer to adulthood.  Yes, they will continue to change and mature over the years, they will in fact become wiser, more insightful, maybe even a bit more stubborn, definitely more independent and one can hope even more loving.  But I assure you that you won’t regret grabbing on to this time in their life.

You don’t have to ask me twice to head to Garberville Community Park at the golden hour.  That’s where I photographed Cadence and it was an absolute great session in every way.

We met at the park around 6:00, with the sun starting its descent for the evening. Cadence was a complete natural in front of the camera.  Her cowboy boots were a great match for the barn. 

Cadences' graduation dress was a beautiful line green dress that she looked fit her personality perfectly. We found some magical light and these shots were the end result. 😀

Senior Shoots are one of my most favorite types of shoots, but I shot quite a few 8th grade sessions this year and I loved them too. Miss Saige was the first one in the middle of May. We met in Southern Humboldt at Tooby Park and found some great spots to shoot. I had taken her volleyball and basketball pictures for Rio Dell Elementary so it was a nice change to see her all dressed up.
