chanel’s mom found a creative way to acknowledge her home schooled daughter’s achievements despite a lack of the traditional graduation commencement.  chanel, who has been playing tennis since she was 4, is on her way to umass (already with college credits) on a full tennis scholarship and to compete as a member of the women’s tennis team representing umass in the atlantic 10 conference.  her pro status has dictated a home school setting missing out on the traditional prom & senior grad moments. so a glam senior portrait session was a must. we captured chanel’s beauty on the court amongst a handful of locations. she even got the chance to wear her prom dress….. and trash it a bit too :)  following suit, we created these contemporary fun tri-fold grad announcements for her to share her success.

the best part of my job is becoming friends with such fabulous people.  i always seem to connect as if god has brought them into my life for a reason.  chanel shares a food allergy to peanuts & battles asthma just as my oldest son does. to see her success despite any limitations was inspiring not only to me but to my little guy too :)   i for sure will be following her journey.
