I've just got to throw this out there: as much as I tell people that I didn't enjoy my high school experience (because I didn't), I want every one to know that I met some really amazing people along the way. I think it goes without saying that the teachers, cheerleaders, cheer moms, coaches, classmates, and their parents all had a profound impact on my life at the time and I find it so wonderful that I get a note, an email, a phone call, or a message from people that I haven't had the pleasure of seeing in years.
You're probably thinking "huh?" and so I'll explain. I got a not from a friend of mine's mother through my blog a few weeks ago. She informed me that her family had a new addition and wanted to know if I'd like to photograph her. Without hesitation I jumped at the opportunity, which for so many people may seem odd but for me it just seemed right.
Boy, was it right.
Through this amazing woman, I was able to meet an adorable little baby named Malina as well as her loving (and creative!) family. Her mother, father, and Godmother were all at the shoot and I had such an amazing time capturing their moments.
They've recieved their pictures already, so I feel good in showing you all a few shots of this adorable little girl and all of the people that love her.
