There are those moments I find myself smiling; I’m so lucky to do what I do. Living the incredible life of a portrait photographer here in Wyoming is such a joy. Even pinching myself doesn’t usher in the reality of how blessed I feel to wake up every morning for over two decades now and capture the inner and outer beauty of amazing people……Amelia is definitely such a person.
Years ago, I met Amelia as a talented and passionate young dancer at the Laramie Dance Center. She was so beautiful to watch, her warmth and energy were captivating. And then just last year I had the honor of creating an amazing family portrait for her wonderful mother.
Amelia has always loved beautiful photography and over the years she has told me how important it is to her to have a beautiful portrait created by me after seeing the portrait I created of her brothers and sister. As I have watched her grow from a girl to an amazing young woman I have looked forward to creating her senior portraits.
Amelia is such a beautiful person on the inside as well as the out. She has taken her love and expression of dance and taught it to others giving graciously of her time. Over the years I have found Amelia baking cupcakes and bringing them to the dance studio for a young dancer’s birthday, picking up and taking home young dancers from dance because their mother was too busy, volunteering for Special Olympics and the list goes on. Recently this caring, compassionate, and talented young lady was elected as senior class president.
Amelia is an inspiration. Within her firm grip is a bright today and tomorrow.
