This guy in these images, I’ve known him since he was five years old. He was in Kindergarten, and yesterday he started his senior year of high school (and drove there by himself in his new truck!). I spent several summers babysitting Ben and his sister Katie, and it’s just hard to believe how grown up he has become. He is absolutely brilliant, is going to be attending one of the top colleges in the nation next year, and I couldn’t be more proud of him. I am so grateful for Margaret and Curtis, Ben’s parents, because not only did they introduce Matt and I (and by marrying Matt, I’m now related to these awesome people!) but they also helped us during the process of buying our first home.
When Margaret asked about doing Ben’s senior pictures at Topsail, his favorite place on Earth, of course I was elated! Enjoy some of my favorites. Ben, I love ya, Buddy! I am so excited for you as you begin this new chapter!
