Cassie and I got a good laugh when we met. We hadn’t met in person yet. And we’d made some last minute changes to our shoot venue to get us closer to home. When I told her we’d start at a restaurant garden and move to other parts of town, she agreed to meet me there. But when Cassie’s bright orange hair turned the corner I chuckled and said, “This isn’t really your look (the garden) is it?” Uh no. We got a good laugh out of that. We have more stories of that evening, unexpectedly met up with a nice Sheriff in town (yikes!), and he directed us to our favorite spot to end the evening. I so enjoyed seeing Cassie’s face light up and laugh with her mom looking on, her tender relationship with her sweet old pup, and how two quiet young ones make such a colorful statement when they get to spend sweet time together. Cassie, you are amazing. I have so enjoyed being a part of your senior year. You are incredibly creative and talented. Go create something cool!
