Our families have known each other since Grace was 9 years old... and my 3 little baby girls fell in love with her. Her whole family was known to my little girls by her name, there was "Mr. Grace" and "Mrs. Grace" and "Grace's sisters", and "Grace!" :)
When I started my photography business 3 years ago, I asked Grace (then 13) if she would model for me - I needed practice. Grace obliged! And her family's feedback was so helpful, and her images really helped me launch my new business. To see those images, scroll to the link at the end of this post!
Grace has just turned 16, and I am so delighted that her fam asked for personalized Sweet 16 portraits. She loves flowers & sky & tiffany blue & pink & fartsy blur. We discussed & decided on ... fields of lavender :) Woodinville Lavender is a beautiful local farm & shop. These are their fields, and this is our Grace:
Great friend, Emma, is here to help :)
So much fun for me.
