Miss A is a very lucky girl. She has wonderful parents and a circle of good friends that are more like family. I am happy to include myself among these lucky people. Her mom grew up next door to my cousin and they are still like sisters and best friends today. That is how I came to photograph A for the first time when she was about 18 months old. Since then, we meet every year in Louisiana or Texas for our session and mutual love fest. This year it was time for Texas and a chance to meet some of her other extended family who I have been hearing about (and I must say I was a little jealous of) for years. We had a wonderful afternoon in the beautiful Hermann Park. Since I stayed at A's house, there were other opportunities to get a few images, like her amazing talents on the soccer field! What an amazing, sweet girl! I miss you Little Bean!
