As I look through these images, I get a strong sense of peace and relaxation. 
It's a feeling that makes my shoulders subconsciously rest and takes my mind to a place far away...a Saturday in the mountains with no agenda, perhaps. 

I love getting to know my clients before our session. I had the opportunity to get to know this girl before she knew me (well, before she knew I was a photographer). My son and her little brother were on the same baseball team together and so we would get to chat at their games. Near the end of the season, connections were made and the family allowed me to document her senior portraits. 

Her sweet spirit inspires me. Her dreams, ambition and love for life is exhilarating. Her look is "beauty" in it's purest form. Overused or not....she's just beautiful.
