Portrait at Sixteen

Here’s my boy. He’s not so much a boy anymore though. I don’t photograph him too much in a formal setting these days although my thinking for this is that I don’t want to use up all his goodwill towards a portrait session before his senior photos next year! Back in May he performed in the UMass Lowell senior wind ensemble. ( I can’t say enough about how great the Umass NEYWE music program is under the direction of Deb Huber). I convinced him to let me take a formal portrait to mark the occasion and also because he had just turned 16. These images can be so bittersweet though. The portrait makes me remember how really special the concert was for our family but also reminds me that my son is growing up so fast……
