Sandra was such a joy to photograph. Like many high school seniors, her prom was cancelled this year when Covid-19 shut down schools across the country. By the time her school had shut down, she had already chosen her dress, found the best shoes and figured out the perfect way to style her hair. The cancellation of prom was disappointing to say the least. It was enough to discourage any senior.

But Sandra showed me that these little moments of joy can make up for some of life's other disappointments. Within just a few minutes, she was laughing and smiling and having a wonderful time while still being able to showcase all that she had worked for. She had worked hard for her senior prom and I am so happy that I was able to give her just a moment to feel as special as she would have on her prom night.

I hope all high school students who missed out on their prom are able to experience moments like these.
