It’s been a busy August around these parts. Had a family vacation, been editing like a mad woman, researching and finding inspiration for my marketing materials, and designing my very good friends wedding invitations. I’ve also been trying to soak up every last minute with this beautiful little girl before she ventures off into the world of first grade.
For over five years, I have been fortunate enough to take care of this super sweet girl. I’ve been with her through some of the biggest milestones, like her first steps and her big girl bed and potty training, and now first grade. I just can’t believe how much life has changed in the past five years. I met an amazing man, I moved three times, I adopted three cats, I bought a new car, I married that amazing man, and now I’m starting my photography business. I honestly believe that none of that would have happened had I not been welcomed into the home of this wonderful family. I’m thankful every single day that they took a chance on me over five years ago.
I hope that this year gives her a chance to grow and explore who she is. After going to her opening house on Thursday and having no less that three people tell us how AMAZING and WONDERFUL her teacher is, I have no doubt that she’ll be able to flourish. I hope she’ll remember this time in her life. And if she doesn’t, I will at least do my very best to document it from behind the lens. Good luck in first grade Amy… you’re gonna do great things!
