OK, so maybe I'm a tiny bit proud

My wee little nugget isn't a little boy anymore.  This is my youngest son Tanner and his girlfriend/prom date, Katrina.

Tonight was Tan's prom, and I confess I was more than excited.  Seth totally wasn't in to prom, and only went when a girl (friend) asked HIM to go.

So when I talked Tanner into actually going, and explained that he had a girlfriend and she was EXPECTING IT, he got a little more into it.  Then we started talking suits vs. tuxes (suit is a good investment and I think it looks nicer).  We shopped for suits together, I did the hemming, he wore my grandfather's tie pin, he picked out a new watch.  I even took him around at the last possible second to try to get a new snazzy hair style but that was a stupid move because everyone was booked solid.

After all the getting ready parts, we met up for a mini shoot at the college.  MUCH better than your boring standard prom portraits.  Well, I think so anyway.  I might do these for other people next year.

If you'd like to see the rest of the pics, of course I've posted them on my Cease Fire Studios blog before like... he's even home from prom.

I need to get out more.

Awww! That's so sweet! I didn't go to my prom. I had a boyfriend and I guess I was supposed to expect it. But a boy friend of mine (not my boyfriend) told me that it was really boring and just a bunch of people that got so dressed up that they were too stuck up about it to dance. And so I skipped. And then I missed out on all kinds of lunch room conversations well into my 20s. But aside from all the missed lunch room conversations, I'm not so sorry I didn't go I guess.

Anyway very nice pictures! I like the hat one best! :-) Bet her mom loves them!
