Ella’s High School Senior Graduation Celebration In Apple Valley, Minnesota

You may remember when I photographed Ella last fall for her high school senior photographs in downtown Minneapolis at Mill City. We made family photographs then to make sure everyone was fully seen for this year, since kids have a way of growing up so fast.

Even Ella had changed over the course of the school year. She always has hair styles that inspire to make changes of my own.

Eric was the grill master. Who inspired me with Father’s Day gifts for our own Dads who have everything they need. Except their favorite sports team on a grill flipper.

The graduates were full of laughter and stories and reminiscing.

Charlie was thankful to have peace. Even though he was sneering at me a bit.

While it lasted.

He escaped and was a patient opportunist.

A brief thunderstorm popped up, which made the party planners thankful they had kept everything inside.

And then the skies cleared and we were able to make a few family portraits in the backyard.
