Orange County Senior Portraits // Autumn

This pretty little fire cracker is also known as my baby sister, Autumn. I cannot believe that she graduated high school a week ago! It seems like just yesterday I was dressing her up as my little doll and using her as a prop for my "blooming" photography career at the ripe age of 12 yrs old (photos upon request). Now she is all grown up and of course, still my little prop. She has become such beautiful young woman, and underneath the Joan Jet haircut and ear plugs, is a creative soul and a heart of gold. I adore this young lady more than words can say, as she was the first of three baby siblings to steal my heart and teach me what it's like to love someone more than myself. I get teary eyed just thinking about all of the fun memories of her as an adorable toddler with huge green eyes calling me "sissy" in the tinniest of voices and following me around everywhere. Now she's almost a woman (not quite eighteen), following her own path while she discovers her place in this world. One of the greatest joys of my life is being a big sister, and I look forward to watching Autumn blossom into the lovely woman I know she was destined to be.
