I have been very fortunate this year to photograph my family.  Because I’m an only child, my family is consisted of mainly cousins, and two nieces.  And I have a couple of cousins this year on their final year of school.  My Sammy is one of them.  She comes from Kenowa Hills High School and she likes hair, nail polish, animals, and Gucci Mane.  Her dislikes:  Horses.

Sam, there are no words that express how much I hold you close to my heart.  I still keep your newborn picture on my desk.  Going through your session has brought tears to my eyes because I still can’t believe what a beautiful young lady you have become, and I’m so fortunate to see you continue to grow.  I know deep down in my heart that you will go to many places and experience amazing things.  I love you more than you may understand now, but I know someday you will.  Until then, I want you to make the best out of your final year in high school.
