I have to admit if we got a do over and I get to take it back to high school I want to be Emily! Yes she is stunningly beautiful, and her dress OH MY!(A perfect fit right off the internet), but all that beauty is also on the inside. She is an amazing daughter, sister, niece, friend... Oh the wonderful speech she gave to her Aunt, I may have shed a tear or two. Everyone in that room seemed to adore her, and she as well. Each person she treated so special. Her smile lights up that room! Sometimes 16 isn't always the easiest of times, Emily is the exception. I met this awesome family about 4 years ago at our first family session. We were back and forth if it was going to happen between sports and the rain etc... well it drizzled but it happened and I loved them from that moment. I have had the privilege of photographing them every year since. Last night a Christmas song started to play (I am a Christmas junkie all good to me!) and the kids were just loving it. Emily said its my party so I'll play what I want! And then she is also in drama so they played a song from High School Musical, one of the shows they performed at school. The kids broke out in their choreographed dance and it was awesome !These are the nights it is hardest for me to accept I will never have a daughter. Keri, you have 3 amazing daughters (and awesome Jack!) you have done the most amazing job raising them into what they are today. Emily I know that your mother is so very proud of you, just keep doing you girl and the world is yours! Thank you for always trusting me to capture your familys memories and I look forward to so many more!
