Lauren and I found a bench where we could sit and chat for a few minutes in Drexel Town Square. It was the most beautiful night; kids were playing in the open grass, couples were grabbing a bite to eat. The summer feeling in full force.
Within five minutes of talking to her, I started to realize how similar we are. Her kindness and curious nature, as well as her ambition and drive to make her dreams come alive make us two of a kind. She is so sweet, warm, and so easy to talk to that I almost forgot I was there to take her pictures. It truly felt like I was reconnecting with a long lost friend.
I can’t wait to watch her inevitable success, and hope that her new portraits will help guide her there!
