As I was editing these images, thinking of just how much older G looked in comparison to her photos a year ago, I felt a strange feeling. I thought of my own parents, and how they must have felt when I left home at the age of 18. I’m sure they thought I grew up too fast, and I know the distance between us is hard.
G and her family are amazing though. I know she’s growing up, and I know it feels like it’s going fast, but her mom and dad truly give her the most important thing someone can give: time! She’s growing up to be a beautiful woman, inside and out, and I can’t wait to see her again!
In a few days I’ll be home with my own family… I hope time stops for just a little bit :-). Wishful thinking!
