I have known this girl since she was what, 8 years old? Maybe 10. A long time. It’s so weird to kids that you know start to grow up at a distance and the next time you see them they’re 17 and driving. You wonder, when did you get to be so grown up, and […]

Not gonna lie, I probably said, “Oh my gosh Ruby!! You are so pretty!”, and squealed with delight, about 2943 times throughout this session with my niece. And given how many actual pictures I take throughout a session, that may seem like a lot, but it wasn’t. So, we can all agree that she is […]
