It’s that time of year again!
For cray-paper and taffeta, glitter and puffy dresses all to be muttered with the phrase “in season” and it to be accepted for one night and one night only!
I love prom!
I love the big dresses and sparkly eye-shadow.
I love the slow jams and the twinkling lights!
It was one night. But it was the night where anything could happen in my mind.

And while nothing really out of the ordinary happened at Prom for me I guess my most cherished memories from this time of year are the things that happened while getting ready for Prom…
Being part of the decorating committee.
My parents allowing me to skip school to go with my friends to the nearest large town (Altoona) for dresses.
The arguments I had with my Mom over what she and what I thought I should wear.
The stress over just asking a guy to the Prom. (Asking a person to prom was stressful enough without the addition of flash-mobs, glee club serenades and whatever else you crazy youngsters do now a days!)
And finally there was the excitement of the day itself!
But enough about me and my cheesy nostalgia.
Let’s get to the pictures!
This year I had the pleasure of capturing two different proms!
First up was Shelby and Jonah for Apollo Ridge’s Prom!
(After years of my begging AND pleading AND whining AND annoying – Shelby finally got a puffy dress!!!)
And then we had Stevanakelly and her date Mike for Plum High School’s Prom!
(This is Stevanakelly’s blog debut! Yay!)
It was so much fun getting to share the evening with both of these wonderful girls!
I hope their proms were as magical and memorable as my proms were.
