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!

this family is just crazy fun (not to mention ridiculously good looking)! this is the second time I have gotten to photograph these beautiful kiddos but the first with mom and dad! I’m so grateful to have families that trust me time and time again for their family memories! I posted a couple before/after pics of the kids on my Facebook page and it’s amazing how much they change in a couple years time!

i had so much fun during their session and can’t wait to see them again! i know they are a super busy family but i hope their summer is awesome so far!
