Kate has been a student of mine since 2004. I was so blessed that she did her senior year of high school at State College of Florida. It freed up some time in her week to assist me on my newborn shoots! I adore my assistants. They help make my job go so much more smoothly. And because most of my assistants are former (or current) students of mine (dancers are so awesome on so many levels), they are used to taking direction from me and have a great attention to detail. Kate needed some senior pictures, and well, I knew a good photographer. So we met up at one of my favorite places and shot this session pretty quickly. Too bad she’s not pretty. I’m going to miss her so much in the fall when she goes away to college!
