Such a sweet, gentle spirit she was in 6th grade as a timid flute player. . . Now, that sweet gentility is accompanied by a spritely confidence with some added instruments (sax and guitar, to be precise). Cindi saw a need in our band and switched from flute to alto and, in high school, saw a need with the show choir and worked with the combo and stage crew before becoming a performer in the group. As drum major, I'm sure she's seeing needs and addressing them in the band and enjoying her senior year to the hilt. I can't believe she's already looking at cap and gown sizes-I feel like I just saw her off to her freshman year! 

We started near Grey's Lake with early morning sunshine for some more nature-driven photos and incorporated her show choir and drum major shoes...

We headed to a spot I've wanted to use for awhile, but it didn't necessarily work into the desires of other seniors. Cindi's flexibility and openness to it was awesome! (And I always try to take a photo with the accompanying parent!)

Lastly, we busted out all the instruments and had a ball incorporating them into different shots: 

Cindi-I can't believe you're here!! I'm even more humbled that you're in front of my camera. Thank you so much for having me and I'm eagerly awaiting to hear of your endeavors in genetic counseling. Go Hawks! :) 

Blessings in everything, 

Mrs. Krupke
