here is another gorgeous 2014 graduate for you! she just graduated from Sacred Heart-Griffin and she is amazing!

this girl met me at sunrise {YES SUNRISE} to begin her session! she loves to sail so we had to get some images to document that! so we started at Island Bay Yacht Club before the sun even came up! i can’t tell you how happy i am with that decision!

she is such a sweet girl ~ very quiet and mature yet so much fun at the same time! i love her style and her hair is just to-die-for! i cannot wait to see the amazing things she’ll do!
