The Kids Are Alright

Copyright 2012 Marc Allen Mintz

Oh, to be young and in love.  🙂

Ben and Talisa (hope I’m spelling that right) stopped by uncle Troy and Aunt Jen’s house on their way up to Portland.  They’ve been on the road from Phoenix where they met at Arizona State studying architecture.  After a year of working “real” jobs, they’ve both decided to take the plunge into grad school where they’ll be studying even more architecture at the University of Oregon’s PDX campus.  (Choose your allegiance wisely Ben and Talisa…go Ducks!)

I find this so inspiring and I really wanted to capture what is really a monumental time in these kids’ lives.

Best of luck you two!  (And prepare for a looong winter 😉 )
