I met Jessie through Young Life at Kings High School. She is friendly + fun, and has a wonderful laugh. When she asked me to take her senior photos, I was honored. It was fun to explore Eden Park on a windy Sunday evening together while we captured an important milestone in her life.
At the end of the summer, Jessie will move to Maryland where she’ll play lacrosse at Frostburg State University. I’d say that sentence sums up a lot about who she is. She’s open-minded to new experiences (or moving to a new state!), she is athletic + strong (capable of playing lacrosse at the collegiate level. you go girl.), and she is mature + independent. Also, this might not be obvious yet, but it’s about to be… she has the most beautiful blue eyes.
I’m the kind of person who will bend over backwards for the people I love most, even if they don’t reciprocate.
I admire my parents. My love for them is unconditional, and I know their love for me is just as equal as mine is for them.
I admire my dad for his success and intelligence. He’s hard headed and gets what he wants because he works for it, but he does it with grace.
I admire my mom for her beauty. Her kindness and eagerness to help others is inspiring. She is the most selfless person I know.
Most of all I admire my parents’ big hearts. My parents love for each other is powerful, and I hope one day I can experience that with someone. I admire them the most.
Jessie, I’m proud of who you are. Your confidence radiates and it’s a beautiful thing. You are strong and committed and you’ll do great things. I’m on the sidelines cheering for you.
