He looked at her differently all throughout dinner. This four year old of mine, who up until this moment had only had eyes for his momma. I could see the way he held on to her every word as she laughed with him and my two other kids. A sixth former (senior) at The Hill School and one of my 2014 JLP Seniors, Rachel had become quite close with our family and with our kids. All three of them loved her. But there was something different about the way my baby was watching her.
And then it came out.
"Rachel…" he said very slowly and calmly, "…you're so pretty."
The table erupted with laughter, and I beamed at my little man.
I may have lost him for a moment there, but I realized in that moment that my boy has got great taste!
Thank you, Rachel, for all the time and effort you put into being one of my 2014 JLP Seniors. I had so much fun photographing you this year, but even more so, I am so thankful that you opened up your heart to my kids.
To them, and to us, you will always be "our Rachel".
