Skylar: Memphis tween photographer
I remember vividly when L called me to schedule Skylar’s photo session. I was actually on GBC’s youth camp in Florida. Little did I know when I met Skylar how much she was going to be a lot like the kid I was while growing up. Growing up is difficult for many different reasons, but it’s especially difficult when circumstances that are out of control can weigh us down. The more I learned about Skylar, the more I felt like I was looking at myself some twenty years ago. She’s strong, determined, focused, and doesn’t quit no matter what life obstacles come her way. She’s got her L looking after her, and I’m thankful I had prayer warriors surrounding me in the midst of all my chaos!
Ok…so I meet S and L at Memphis Botanic Gardens. Throughout S’s life, L has always been the one to take her “formal” photos. L is a freelance photographer. S wanted something completely different, and I was glad that she chose me out of all the “photographer leads” she received on FB.
S has a huge heart! But, I also know she has a fighting spirit, so I tried to show both sides during the photo session. She plays ball (catcher, I think?) She’s girly, but not too much so. L is such a great role model for Sky. I’m so glad I met these two! I love keeping up with them on FB and seeing where their next adventure takes them!
Blessings and Peace,
thought for the day:
The Lord detests the use of dishonest scales, but he delights in accurate weights.
