When I met my husband Beau, I also met all of his younger siblings and cousins. This particular beauty is his cousin Rachel. I’ve watched her grow up since she was a little girl. I don’t even know how old she was when I met her. I do remember trying (and failing miserably) to french braid her hair once when we were camping at Bruneau Sand Dunes about 8 years ago. She suffered through me pulling way too hard until I was done and she said “It kind of hurts.” Whoops!
Now, she’s all grown up and gorgeous and a senior at Skyview High and I’m sitting here wondering where the time goes.
I’m so happy I was able to be the photographer for her senior photos. She was the perfect model – willing to goof off in downtown Nampa and dance around in a field to her favorite song. We had an awesome time, played around in some epic, summer light, and made fun of each other the whole evening. As we should, right?
Rachel is rad. Even though I feel like she’s a younger sibling that I’m supposed to pick on, it’s easy for me to say I’m super proud of her and excited to see what she does in the future.
