I have a couple of teenagers of my own, but I don’t feel like I’ve aged in direct proportion to the number of years they’ve been on this earth. I feel much younger than I have a right to.
And I never imagined the day that I would be taking photos of a girl I saw being born 18 years ago. I mean, that felt like it was only yesterday. Probably because I don’t see her very often, in my mind she’s still the baby she once was and it was a bit heartbreaking to be slapped in the face with reality – that she is not a child, but a beautiful, smart, funny woman. I’ll admit it – I cried when I was editing these photos, but in the end I’m proud of what we came away with.
