My nearly identical sister, best friend, and model since the first time I picked up a camera is a senior - how'd that happen so fast? Congratulations to this sweet girl! I'm so thankful for her many years of patience as I practiced my photography skills using her as a model all around our hometown growing up. She's a sweetheart - and I'm not just saying that because she's my sister. I love this girl; her selflessness, kindness, humour, and smile that never seems to fade. What a blessing it was to be able to capture this moment in her life - and what better place than North Topsail Island? Our family has been visiting this beach yearly for as long as I can remember, so it is a place very near and dear to our hearts. The crazy wind was a challenge undoubtedly worth the extra effort! What a beauty she is.
