Meet Stevie. She’s a lover of romance, my daughter and a high school senior. She’s amazing and she can swim fast! I noticed how this image is a great metaphor for our life together. Sometimes her growing-up feels like a marathon, we’re always trying to get somewhere. Other times, it’s so smooth, as we slip into the spring and flowing downstream together. If you follow along, you’ll be reading more about Stevie and her escapades during her last year as a full time resident at home. Right now she’s buried in college applications, class requirements and just trying to get it all done. It’s a little stressful. This shot is at Barton Springs and was made in the lazy days right before school started. It’s one of the many portraits I’ll make with her this year.
