Some people just have a glow. I could tell while we were Facetiming and she was showing me her closet and we were discussing possible wardrobe choices. I could tell then, that she had that glow. Her laugh came easily, her blue eyes were clear and twinkling. I knew just looking at my phone, we were going to have a blast.
And we did, it's so fun to photograph someone who knows her own soul. She knows what she likes, what's doesn't work for her, and she knows how to find a whole lot of joy in her life. I was just along for the ride, ready to document it.
Next year at this time she'll be wrapping up her freshman year of college and a whole lot of change will have happened. My hope and prayer is that she'll remember her own soul, she'll allow it to grow and change and yet stay grounded.
And maybe that's my hope for myself as well.
