A few months ago I had the pleasure of meeting Ashlyne, a pretty preteen who needed a confidence boost. When I suggested a photo shoot, she jumped at the chance, and her dad brought her to have her pictures taken. She was a total natural, and her sweet demeanor shined through the entire time. I’m so happy I could make her see her beauty – when she saw these she was taken aback. And I was reminded again why I love to do what I do. Middle school is such a tough age, and being able to bring a smile to even one girl’s face makes me so happy.
