i love, LOVE this girl.
and so does my camera.
i've been trying to become a better photographer and thankfully she is always a willing (and endlessly patient subject.) i don't know if she has any idea what a help she's been to me. we got together the day before she returned to college from her holiday break and, with her littlest cousin underfoot, had ourselves a photo session. (her younger brother was around too, but until i have his permission, i don't feel right about posting his pictures on my blog.) i forced myself to only choose 5 pictures of her to post (and let me tell you, narrowing it down was beyond difficult) so if you're inclined to see more, the rest are here and some from the summer here.
