I cannot believe my baby sister is graduating high school in just 4 weeks! Such a bittersweet session for me!
I’ll never forget her arrival. Her mom went into labor the morning I left for summer camp! I got a box of brownies and baby photos in the mail and had to wait two whole weeks to meet her! With such a large age gap between her and I, she’s always been my little mini me. From the moment I could drive that kid went everywhere with me. Being the baby of the family with an almost 15 year age gap, she’s essentially an only child and the center of the universe…but we wouldn’t have it any other way! She’s grown to be such a kind, thoughtful, and easy going young woman – and I know she’s going to do great things! She shares my love of horses, monograms, and Lilly Pulitzer….because what is more important in life? Ha!
We kicked off the first half of her session at my favorite spot in South Nags Head….
As luck would have it, right at the tail end of our beach session it started to rain – so we made a mad dash back to the car. It took a couple of months, but we finally managed to get a day we were both free to do the second half of her session. Six years of cheer has come to an end, and we wanted to get in some photos with her uniform before it had to be turned in. We pushed it to the very last possible second, and even though we had an overcast and chilly day we got it done!
