I remember when Mallory was a sixth grade girl living across the street from us. Her little sister, Megan, quickly became my daughter, Layne’s, BFF so trips between the two houses were very common for both families. Gradually, Mallory aged out of her role as our babysitter and became an active high school girl. It is hard to believe she graduated last weekend and will be heading off to college in just a few months. She is a beautiful young lady with a sweet, gentle spirit. I have loved photographing her over the years.
