It's no surprise to anyone who follows my work or has met me that I take my job of raising two daughters very seriously. We hope that what we are doing is the recipe for women who are well rounded, well spoken, charismatic, polite and yet grounded. (to name a few.. ) and for now it's just a bit of wishes and hard work. This young woman is what we would hope from our girls... she's the whole thing. I was happy and honored to photograph her as she enters her last summer as a real high school student. The world is wide open and I think she knows exactly how to make her space and leave her mark.
