This was a particularly cathartic session for me. Having known Casey since she was little and knowing that she lost her father when she was a toddler I wanted to honor him and his brother that adopted her during her senior portrait session. I sent her on a mission to find something that once belonged to her dad and smuggle it along so that we can incorporate it into her senior portraits as a surprise for the family. When she pulled her father's football jersey out of her bag, I had to fight back the tears. I literally got a chill.
Her dad would be proud.
The rest of us certainly are. <3
