Graduating Seniors have filled a wall with written notes about their portrait sessions at G. Patterson Studio.

At the studio, we have a dressing room for our clients.  In that room, there is a wall where graduating seniors have written little notes about their sessions and signed their names.  Looking at this wall the other day got me thinking about the individuality of each of these seniors.  Every word is penned with [click title to read more ;)]
