Jennifer’s 16th Birthday

When you meet a young lady who truly has an inner beauty as bright and vibrant and her outer beauty, you wonder what sort of circumstances could have contributed to such a perfect mix. And then, you meet Jennifer’s family and friends and you know.

I had the privilege of photographing Jennifer’s Sweet Sixteen party on Friday and the best part wasn’t the dress or the cake or the party, it was seeing all the people in her life come together to celebrate her in a way which highlighted what a sweet, intelligent, and caring young lady she is. When you get to be part of something so genuine, it moves you. And it moved me.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from the evening…
