It never ceases to amaze me when I have family come to me and say “your little cousin is graduating, can you take photos?” It always knocks me on my butt, and makes me think back to when they were born, how old I was, all of the accomplishments I’ve watched them achieve throughout their life, and who they have grown to become.
My “little” cousin Lauren, who actually towers over me, was a big shock for senior photos. I remember holding her as a baby, when I wasn’t much more than one myself. I’ve watched her become an amazing young woman, athlete, and human.
From volleyball champ, to bleeding heart, she has always been kind and humble. I was so happy to get the chance to take her senior photos, and will be doing a second round of photos soon!
