Alex (#2)

When Alex #2's mom called to ask about taking senior pictures, I was seriously in disbelief. "Noooo...he can't be a senior. Really? He's a senior, already??" Even my husband argued with me later about it. "Ummm...I think his mom would know whether or not he's a senior," I counter-argued (conveniently failing to mention my own disbelief from earlier).

So, apparently, the old saying is true: time DOES fly!

Here's a little sneak peek from Alex (#2)'s senior photo shoot in downtown Wichita Falls, Texas.

This is one of my favorite locations to shoot at in downtown Wichita Falls. It used to be a great little hidden spot, until they tore down the building next door. Sadly, I don't think it's much of a secret, anymore. Shucks.

Funny story: So, we wanted to get a few pics on the train tracks. We drove to a spot where we wouldn't have to worry about know, cars constantly driving over the tracks. We didn't have to worry about any cars, but we did have to worry about a train! Confession: I had a really hard time getting a good shot because I was so shaky (I tend to get like that at the end of a long, I hadn't eaten dinner yet) and because I was frantically trying to get all the shots I needed before the train got too close. Alex wisely mentioned that if we didn't get our vehicles back across the tracks, we might get stuck on the other side (with no exit route). You can't see it in this picture, but there's a big white light right behind his head from the oncoming train! (By the way, wasn't that fabulous backlighting?)

Con"grad"ulations on your senior year, Alex!
