If I've photographed you in the past year, you've likely met her. She's a client, turned intern, turned dear, dear friend. I was thrilled to get to photograph Genna in the summer of 2009 and even more thrilled to learn she had an interest in photography.
It wasn't long into her senior portrait session when I offered her my 2009-2010 intern position. She's been invaluable to me this last year, taking time to join me for so many sessions. She's a very talented photographer an absolutely incredible young woman.
We've spent a lot of time shooting, editing, grabbing late-night dinners, chatting about photography and our love of food, fashion, music, iPhone apps and….just life in general. We've got a lot in common and we've had a great time getting to know one another. I've been blessed to have her in my life and I'm not the only one who adores her. My girls are simply crazy for her, too! Genna and her mom are like family to us.
The three of us had a lovely dinner tonight.
In a couple of days Genna will head off to college and while I will miss her dearly, I can't wait to see what life has in store for her. She will do great things. I just know she will.
I hate goodbyes, so I'll just say this…Genna, you are amazing in every way. You are wise and strong, you are beautiful and kind and you are a gift to those who have the privilege of knowing you. Stay true to who you are and please, please stay in touch.
With lots of love,
