This shoot was so special to me. When we moved into our neighborhood this fun and beautiful girl and her parents (especially) Mom became our fast friends. They deemed my girls the bouncing blonds as she took them in, taught them how to flip on the trampoline, shared all their foster puppies with us, for which I loved and hated as I had two crying girls in my kitchen BEGGING to have one of the puppies. Back then she was early in junior high, quiet at times, other times she was full of life wanting to wear all my strappy high heel shoes. Now she has turned into this GORGEOUS woman, in love with her jeep, boyfriend and life itself. I love these pictures and they scare me at the same time to see she really has grown up. We had a blast as I learned ‘jeep etiquette’ something you MUST know if you are going to own a jeep, talked of her sweet southern boyfriend and reminisced about the past 7 seven years since moving into this neighborhood. So here I present this young woman, no longer the little girl next door. Congrats Lainie! I know you will do GREAT things!!!
