This beautiful young lady is someone very very special to me. She was the first person I trusted to care for my children besides family members. When we moved an hour and a half away it was heart breaking to not be able to see her and her parents on a regular basis anymore and the kids miss her tremendously. I've been lucky enough to keep in close contact with all of them and keep them a part of our lives. She asked me to photograph her prom experience from beginning to end and I did just that.
When I arrived, there was another beautiful young lady's pictures on the fridge. There were three pictures of her mother in her prom dress. I thought that was pretty darn neat, so I made sure I captured that as well.
One of Michaela's passions is horses. She's volunteered and worked on a couple different horse farms, so making sure there was a horse in a couple of the pictures was essential. Oh yeah, and her handsome boyfriend of several years, Dwight.
