There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind. -C.S. Lewis
We have arrived at that time of year when motivational speeches are made, caps are flying, Moms' tears are flowing, and the anticipation of what is to come can be overwhelming. It was an honor to capture Katie and her family before her commencement ceremonies at the International School of Brussels. Katie and her family have been a very special part of our time here in Brussels. Our dear Canadian friends will be embarking on a new adventure in the US, and WE Photography was thrilled to be able to photograph one of their final moments at ISB. To say Katie is talented would be an understatement. Music is her forte (pun intended haha), and she shared her gift with a solo at the commencement ceremony. Young, smart, talented, gorgeous on the inside and out….Miss Katie you are going places. And, WE can't wait to say, "We knew her when…." So, get out there and find those far, far better things. Embace it all! Best wishes to you and to the whole family. Brussels will not be the same without you.
You may be wondering…what is with the shoes? One of my favorite traditions at ISB is the seniors' shoes. The week of graduation, the seniors' shoes are displayed over the entrance to the campus. It's powerful and brings me to tears. They have worked hard, really hard…most graduating from the IB program. They have walked this campus, and now it is time for them to move on. Make new memories. Strive for success in this great big world. They are international. Their studies will take them all over the world. But, they will always have the International School of Brussels to tie their hearts together.
