I remember when Rachel was born. The baby sister of a friend of mine, I used to carry her up and down the length of the swimming pool in high school during our swim meets. Now she is a young woman, ready to graduate and take on the world. We had a wonderful afternoon together at North Lake Park in Loveland to commemorate her accomplishment and transition into adulthood. My son joined us (he has currently named himself "Lettuce") and he "helped" mommy with the lighting. We used a mixture of off-camera lighting and natural light to make this middle-of-the-day session soft in lighting, while crisp in clarity. I'm hoping maybe someday Rachel can also teach me how to do my makeup because hers is flawless!
