Becca's Graduation

It's hard to believe that my peanut of a little sister is officially a high school graduate. It's even harder to put into words, the emotions this moment brings me. She is all grown up and on her way to West Chester to study music! Boy do I feel old now... But I couldn't be more proud of her. She has come such a long way to the short and shy little girl in elementary school. Now she is a (still short) bold, beautiful, confident and talented young woman carving through the path to her next adventure. I can't wait to see what you achieve!

Becca's Senior Prom

Since falling in love with photography, my main subjects were always my sisters. I have a fond memory of 2 particular images I captured of them on film. One of Rachel, now 23, when she was about 7. It was a close-up portrait with her hair in messy pigtail buns; her beautiful amber eyes were captured crystal-like in black and white. The other one was of Becca, now 18. She was about 2 years old. She has this cherub face, her lips so tiny yet plump and a button nose. Her hair was dark and full of baby curls. I had her hold a rose near her face and smile with her 2 cute little front baby teeth. She had on pajamas that were blue with yellow stars. I printed it and hand painted it and have never forgotten my love for that photo and that moment. Now she is 18 and stunning, graduating from high school and planning her college life at West Chester University to become a music teacher. How time flies...
