I’ve known this girl since the day she was born. I’ve watched her grow up. Somehow the chubby baby with the crazy klingon smile turned into this stunning young woman who is as smart and talented as she is beautiful. Katarina is my best friend’s niece and soon she’ll be graduating high school and going off to college. I was so happy when she asked if I would take her senior photos. Back when I was a high school senior (she’s about to be a Chino High alum, just like I am!), the only senior photos you took were the yearbook ones that were taken in a studio, in front of a plain backdrop, wearing the top half of an off-shoulder dress. Not exactly a good look. But now? Now the kids go all out. They still do that same yearbook photo, but a lot of them are opting for real photo shoots, on-location, in real clothes that depict their style. Much better.
It was so fun to get Kat in front of my camera again and I have to admit I got a little teary eyed from behind my camera as I watched this beautiful girl work it on the other side. When did that little baby turn into a super model!? I love you, Kat and am so proud of you! Can’t wait to see what big things you do from here on out.
