I’m not sure where the past 18 years have gone. You see, I have known this senior for his whole life, all 18 years! His mom and my husband grew up together, and we have all remained friends across the miles and the years. So when it came time for this Batavia High School Class of 2017 senior to have his senior photos taken, I was so happy to document this special year for his family. Luckily, I know some things that make him laugh, I know all of their pet’s names, and we were able to just relax and enjoy our night on a beautiful farm.
Since “J” works at the incredibly awesome Rustic Road Farm in Elburn, he asked the owners if we could possibly do his senior photos there and being the kind people that they are, they said yes. Talk about a gorgeous Kane County backdrop for photos! And, the farm animals were in a few photos, too. Baby goats, chickens, roosters, and the farm dogs all followed us around to say hi. Well, the chickens were the biggest photo-bombers but they sure made us laugh. If you haven’t been to Rustic Road before, stop on by and tell them that I sent you over for some farm fresh eggs, delicious summer and fall vegetables, raw honey, local meats, and so much more!
J is a varsity wrestler for Batavia High School, so we made sure to incorporate his letter jacket on this warm fall night. We took our time walking throughout the farm, talked about college, and reflected back on how time flies. He will be heading to Grand Valley State University in Michigan in August! I know he’s ready for for the next chapter, college (but I’m not so sure his mom is!). Sending you the best wishes for college, J, and a few hugs, too!
