I adore all of the little friends I meet through Short & Sweet sessions. I have received numerous hugs, high-fives, and the occasional wilted dandelion as we part to go our separate ways. Yet this session was uniquely special to me. It was such an honor to photograph Celia, a high school senior. This is one of the most incredible times in our children's lives--the transition from 'child' to 'adult' in the course of a single year. Every milestone is worthy of adoration and pride, both of which were beaming through her mom's eyes. My heartfelt wishes for success go to Celia, as she turns her childhood dreams into lifelong reality during the next chapter of her life. Simply stunning, inside and outside.

And equal parts fun and playful!

It was truly my pleasure, Celia. Thank you for sharing this special time in your life with me! -Kristen
