Kelsey and I met up on a sunny July evening in L'Anse for her senior portraits. I've known Kelsey ever since she was very young and learning to figure skate in the L'Anse-Baraga Figure Skating Club. Throughout the years, I know I've helped coach or choreograph an ice show number for her. The rink was our lives! Its insane for me to think she'll be skating her senior solo this spring!
We started her session on the edge of town and made stops around the Pequaming area. Her ending location was the field behind her house which was perfectly painted by the last rays of sunlight peaking from beyond Baraga across Keweenaw Bay. Often I'm asked why I start my sessions so late in the evenings. Those last frames of Kelsey in her flannel show exactly why.
