With the spring taking the stage (and a gorgeous snow day intermission), lots of exciting things are waiting in the wings. In May: graduation! All of the seniors we photograph will receive their diplomas and turn over a new leaf their lives. It will be fun seeing where they go.
Another rite of passage looms this month: prom, for Chugiak, Eagle River, Bartlett, South, West, East, and Service high schools. Prom has long been the utmost anticipated evening of high school and it’s more than just a night of $600 dresses and awkward slow dances. It is an introduction into society, much like a cotillion, bar or bat mitzvah. It is a fun night out with friends and a chance to show off your dance moves. Finally, it’s a chance to look simply beautiful (or handsome) as who you are as a young adult. It says, this evening might not be perfect, but I’m going to have a blast with my favorite people because we have a whole amazing life ahead of us. Live it up, Class of 2016.
