Tuxedo’s, gowns, limo’s, hair and make-up, garter’s, corsages, boutonnieres’, bow ties, heels = Prom!!!
It is that time of year where high school seniors get to celebrate their hard work by getting all dolled up and having fun with their friends. Preparation began months ago. Guys have to do “promposals” these days. (If you don’t know what that is, YouTube it. It’s fun to watch.) The young ladies search for their perfect dress, matching shoes and jewelry. Then on the morning of prom – well the rush is on; the girls have to get their nails, hair and make-up done. I say guys have it easy – they rent a tux, shower and get dressed. They are so lucky!
Since these kids spend so much time preparing for this day and truly look their best – why not hire a photographer? Seriously, it is the perfect time to get professional pictures taken! That is exactly what Yvette and her mom Lisa did. Yvette graduated in 2015 but her boyfriend Ethan graduates this year and her mom Lisa loves to capture these moments to have beautiful portraits for her walls.
We took a few pictures of the two of them alone at Fabyan Forest Preserve in Geneva before meeting up with his friend’s downtown Oswego. From there they rode in a beautiful stretch limo from A1Roma Limousine to have dinner at Jennifer’s Garden in Morris, IL. I believe prom this year at OHS was titled, “Written in the Stars”.
I know I say that I feel Blessed in most of my posts. I don’t mean to be repetitive, it’s just that it is completely true. I love being a part of their lives, especially during monumental occasions. These young people are so full of life and have the world at their fingertips. To them I say, “This is the beginning of anything you want”. Thank you Lisa, Yvette & Ethan for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful day. I’m sure you had a great time.
