Senior Portraits Album – Patience

November, as it seems, has returned to its previously scheduled programming with a chilly and damp fall Friday morning. The bonus week of summer escaped just before the weekend, but there are plenty of warm memories of summer and colorful days of October packed into this album from Patience’s Senior Sessions.

Soak up the bright summer colors, wildflowers in bloom and warm August afternoon glow of these summertime Senior Session album pages.
