“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” – unknown
This quote immediately made me think of Josie. She is full of confidence and is beautiful inside and out. She knows that beauty doesn’t just lie in the makeup or clothes she wears. She is beautiful no matter what she wears, and she knows that, which I love! She loves playing volleyball and could quite possibly be a model some day.
I had the opportunity to photograph Josie almost exactly two years ago right before her 16th birthday. You can see those pictures HERE. This year her shoot was right before her 18th birthday, I can hardly believe how fast time goes by!
We had so much fun at the marina with her cousin and a friend, just laughing, and joking, and enduring the freezing cold wind and even some rain. You wouldn’t be able to tell that Josie was freezing during all of these pictures from the smile on her face!
Thank you Josie for letting me have the opportunity to capture you’re beauty again.
