Senior Picture

When I was a senior in high school, it was mandatory that we had to all get our senior pictures taken for the year book at the same photography studio - someplace akin to a Sears picture place, which made us all look like your typical senior dork. I had super short hair and in the picture looked like a small, timid, boy child. 
These days, I've learned, that they allow students to get them taken by whomever wherever, so while up at Lake Superior last week, my soon-to-be-senior niece Sophie (you may have seen her on Closet Visit) asked le mari to photograph her for her senior picture. She's so gorgeous and such a sweet, smart and feisty girl. I'm very proud to be her auntie. 
I wanted to share some outtakes. Because, unknowingly, the outtakes turned out to be a possibly amazing ad campaign for the messenger bag.
Of course it could also be a hot ad campaign for Sperry Top Siders and Ray Bans and whatever else she was wearing that day. :)
Here we are walking to our "location" for her shots. She's a pretty good rack for CV bags. Silver bando anyone? :) 
Somehow I doubt Sophie will every think her senior pics are dorky.

The topsiders are SO adorable (as is your niece), what style of Sperry's are they? LOVE them.

She's adorable (why wasn't I like that at her age? my senior photo was a lot like yours), but your red jeans are HOT and could only be worn well by someone considerably older than a high school senior. Proof that some things do get better with age!
