The Rest of the Sneak Peeks....

Today I wanted to go ahead and post the rest of the sneak peeks that we have for Dak's Senior Pics. I am so pleased with just these four, and am really anticipating getting the whole gallery of them to look at and choose from. GREAT!!! But for now, sit back and enjoy my boy. (Yeah I know, such a poetic soul =)

This one was taken downtown in a remote area like by a bridge or something like that. He LOVED the ones taken here. He talked a lot about these. I didn't go along for the downtown shots, so this was a beautiful surprise for me, and a tease. Can't wait to see more...

This one I posted yesterday ~~ studio shot ....

I really like the background she used on this one, and I LOVE this shirt.....and this boy.....

This is my fav shot of the four. It was as well taken downtown and it was so funny because Dak said, "Mom this was an alley and it stunk bad. It smelled like pee, but I managed to keep a straight face." hahahahaha Yes you did my boy....a beautiful straight face at that!!

Well, there you have boy and the start of his Senior pics. I know you're probably going to get sick of hearing about Dak's Senior Year, but ya know, just the way we roll around here =) Next up will be our last school shopping day for High School....quick, grab that tissue.... I'm looking forward to it, because these are monumental fun days for us. Oh yes and he has a b-day right around the corner, also looking really forward to that.

This child brings my life joy, pain, adventure, and love beyond measure, as only a child can do. Dak you are the best kid!!! I love you so ~~

I'd like to leave you with an exert from the "Senior Journal: A MaMa's Perspective" that I'm writing in, and this I wrote about his Senior Pics:

Yesterday you took Senior Pics and I couldn't have asked for a sweeter moment. Your eyes tell the story of your heart; strong, vulnerable, loving, true.....

The pictures produced yesterday only tell part of the story. It is up to you to tell the rest. It is up to you to write it on the pages of your heart by your choices. Write well my boy, write well. It matters what you choose. It matters.

I love you so,



  1. OK... your words to him made me tear up... at the end of this journal, its going to be a masterpiece!!!!

    That's so funny you said that about his eyes telling a story... I SWEAR TO YOU... that comment I put on Facebook about his eyes looking like they have a story - I wrote that before I saw this! How crazy is that?!?!?!?!?!

    Love you friend!!!

  2. Dawn,

    WOW these are truly some amazing pictures. I love the first and last one the best. So much character and personality in each of them and allows us to see different sides of Dak.

    I love your journal entry and haven't yet started mine yet.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  3. Those are so good!! I bet you're going to have a hard time choosing when you see them all! Wow, senior year already...I bet you'd tell me that it just flew by arrived before you knew it! I can't imagine taking senior pictures with Ava, but I know better than to believe that it's an eternity away...they grow up too fast!! Enjoy all these milestones this year :)
