I usually don’t create a blog post only hours after finishing a shoot, but I am a little choked up about how beautiful you are inside and out. I will never forget the day I met you and how you bounded full of life into my classroom. The beauty of you, Lauren, is that you have always stayed true to who you are. You have never allowed anyone to derail you from being the exceptionally quirky, loving and creative person you are. I feel honored that I was your teacher and in some small way was a part of the construction of YOU. The rain threatened and spitted a bit today, but of course you had your super sunny smile ready to go and we marched out fearlessly onto and around Main Street. You have become exactly what I expected all along….a truly beautiful human being inside and out and I couldn’t be more proud of you. You are blessed with incredible parents who have guided and nurtured you along the way, all the while allowing you to be unique and spirited in personality and temperament. Please know that I am patiently waiting to see what you accomplish as you head out next year on your new adventure. So many people will be fortunate to cross your path and get to the know the lovely person you are.
Lots of love and hugs,
P.S. I’m searching for Dr. Who with Vincent van Gogh:-)
