Your child is going to be starting their senior year of high school.

Two of my boys have graduated high school and I have to say the emotions the second time around were just as much the first time. The senior year of high school though is such a fun year. Its a year of independence too. Its a whirlwind year with thinking about what the future holds for your child. Whether its trade school, college, a gap year, going into the work force… So that leads me to yearbook photos. Who do I get my photos done with, when do I get my photos done?
