There are things in life that just make you feel old. Taking the senior pictures of someone you used to babysit is one of them.

A month ago our family friend Connie emailed me and asked if I would take her son Trent's senior pictures. My mouth dropped open. I used to babysit both him AND his OLDER brother. Geesh. Well, as ancient as I felt, I was still deeply honored, and I had so much fun! Trent truly thought (or hoped, at least!) that we were going to take just a few pictures and be done with it! Boy oh boy, I'm not sure he realized what he was getting into!

Trent, seriously, you were great! Not only were you willing to do anything I asked to get 'the shot', but you are also witty, humble, and intelligent. Your parents should be proud! Thank you again! Kelly

When we first got into the car, my first question to Trent was "So, how opposed are you to trespassing?" I do a LOT of trespassing when I take photos. Luckily, Trent was on board.

Trent and his killer green eyes.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this photo. Julie Gathmann, thank you for letting us trespass to get this photo!!!

Trent's the pitcher for his team, and his mom requested pictures of him in his uniform; so, we headed to the baseball field. Throughout the night, I had asked Trent a lot of questions about where he was thinking about going to college. He was unusually vague for a senior about his college plans. After I got home, my mom told me that Trent is a PHENOMENAL pitcher and will probably be scouted this spring and play in college. Hence the vagueness...and the humility I mentioned above.

Trent in action.

By this time, Trent had "Stockholm Syndrome"...he was working with his captor. He was giving me different smiles on command and changing the angle of his head after every shot. He's ready for GQ!

We actually took these a couple of days after the original shoot. It was getting ready to storm, and the sky was beautiful. They are my favorites out of all the pictures we took.

Trent, thank you! Once again, you were great, and I had a great time! Good luck in all you do, and I hope you have a great senior year! KM
