I met Malin in a round-a-bout way. Her mom regularly attends a fitness class I teach at a local fitness center here in Greensboro. Being that we had recently moved here when I first started teaching, I was talking to her mom about how I didn't know any babysitters. Voila! She offered up her daughter, who loves kids, and the rest is history. I can be somewhat shy and reserved, but not when it comes to getting someone to help me with my munchkins.
Malin, my girls (I don't typically bring them to sessions, but they adore this girl) and I met up at the Paul J Ciener Botanical Garden in Kernersville. It was perfectly cloudy, breezy, and warm - basically a great evening for a photo shoot. The location was gorgeous and had a good mix of the natural/plant vibe and lots of brick and stone to satisfy my love of a 'downtown' vibe. I will definitely be going back for other sessions.
While most High School Seniors take the summer off to spend some quality time with friends and family before they head off to college, Malin is cutting that short. She is heading out on a huge, scary and (what is sure to be) an amazing adventure pretty much as soon as she tosses her cap. It's going to be so much fun watching where life takes her.
Best of luck, Malin!
