maddie grace.

it's official, i feel old.
y'all, meet maddie. she's my sister in-law, but being as we've been family since she was 9, i think it's safe to just go ahead and call her my sister. i love her like she is anyway. ;)
this chica is graduating in a few months AND turning 18. what????
how did this happen?

while we were home in georgia last week, we did her senior photos.
it's amazing what a beautiful young woman she's grown up to be.
i love this sweet face with all that's in me!

it's funny, she was one of my first victims when i started my photo biz. 
i should pull some of those from the archives and let you see!
i've grown as a photographer just as much as she's grown into a woman!

she'll be heading off to college in a few months and getting a taste of so many new things.
it scares the living day lights out of me.
i never had the live away from home experience, but she'll be out of state.
lots of new responsibilities and freedom.
oh my, the whole family may have to go on xanax for this one haha!

this one's my absolute favorite.
as much as i want children, i can't imagine having them grow up!!!!
