It’s a special day today! It’s Shelby’s birthday! This gorgeous girl and I started working together 3 years ago- 3 years! And I have loved EVERY minute. Shelby is one of my 2020 Elite Seniors, but when she told me she still wanted her spring teen session this year, I was all for it! We headed out to Point Defiance on a gorgeous, sunny, spring day and took her 11th grade photos. She chose Point Defiance because her grandfather has a gazebo that was built at the park in his memory and she wanted to take some photos at the gazebo. What a cool thing, huh?
Shelby is always positive, always smiling and always has her head up despite some of her challenges in life. This young lady came into the world as a preemie several months early and still has some residual effects and health issues as a side effect. But somehow, someway, she pulls this positive energy deep from within and continues to be a light in everybody’s day. I can’t believe this is our last year together, I truly don’t know what I am going to do without my Shelby when she heads off to college next year!
Thank you, Shelby and Amy for so much support, fun and advocacy. It is truly an honor and pleasure to work with you both. Enjoy a sneak peek into her Point Defiance Park Teen Photos and Happy Birthday Shelby!
