Layla has a background in theater and this knowledge alone made me highly anticipate her photoshoot. I knew we’d have so much fun together. She exceeded expectations! She was always ready with her megawatt smile. Mom and Dad also spared no effort to make the photoshoot as magical as could be. Dad shaded the sun for Layla. Mom tenderly assisted Layla when she switched to high heels. It’s true – a child, regardless of age, is always the apple to the parents’ eyes. That unconditional love doesn’t stop. And it is that very unconditional love and parental modeling that inspired Layla to pursue a career in elementary education. Her future students will be so lucky to have a teacher who is so warm and inviting. I’ve no doubt Layla will go on to create a positive impact for her students!
Layla, thank you so much for letting me document this important time in your life. Photographing you is such a joy! And I adore getting to know your parents. When your mom teared up seeing these photos, I can feel the depth of her love and pride in you. I hope you carry that unconditional love with you always. ❤️
