you’ve come a long way, baby

One of the greatest joys of my job (or markers of my age) is watching your families grow up. This little one…oh wait, I can’t call her that. This young woman was just about 11 when I photographed her 7 years ago. Now she’s just graduated high school and on her way to Scotland to attend the University of Edinburgh. I don’t even know how that happens! It terrifies me and fascinates me all at the same time. Which is probably why I like following you around with my camera year after year. You teach me about what’s coming next and remind me of how sweet it’s been. Thanks for that!
