Paul and I have had the privilege to work with the most talented and amazing students for over a decade now in theater! We are so blessed to create a culture that honors Jesus and brings life and purpose to others in the arts. We love our students and always refer to them as our second family. What's beautiful is how we have stayed connected to such an awesome group, even after they graduated. To say we are thankful would be an understatement and we love watching these performers become who they are called to be. Ellie is someone that we have both just loved to pieces since she was in elementary school! She has always been her own person and we have just loved watching her grow into quite the young woman! She is so good on stage, it's mind blowing! Her talent and her ability to think in the moment has always impressed me and I can't wait to see what she will do this coming year! I have such a flood of emotion capturing her as a senior and knowing how beautiful she is as a person, how much she loves God, and how much she wants to bring to the world around her. I have no doubt that the torch she carries will bring many to the goodness and the Light of Christ! Cue the tears...here are a few favorite images from our fun session together! The last few images were nearly shot in the dark, but no worries, Ellie's face lit them up!!
