I know there’s a recurring theme to many of my posts, but it’s no coincidence that I’ve known Emily since she was a very little girl, because back in grade school, Emily and my daughter Alexis were friends, so I have had the pleasure of knowing Emily and her family for many years. I took photos for her gorgeous sister, Hailey, a few years ago, and now it was time for Emily to be in front of my lens for the first time in nearly a decade. It was hard for me at first to shake off the memories of the little girl I knew, but it was hard to escape the absolutely sweet and gorgeous young woman she’d become.
Given her favorite quote, it seemed only appropriate that we shot her photos around fields of beautiful blossoms. “Remember this: a flower does not think of comparing itself to the flower next to it. It just blooms.”
As have you, Emily! Thank you for letting me help you capture this time of your life. It seemed like the perfect bookend to the funny, silly pics I have of you when you were a little girl. And don’t worry – I won’t share those here! 🙂
