Sweet Sixteen

This redhead is my very own. Turning 16 is special, especially when she is your oldest. I promise it feels like she was just in diapers watching Dora the Explorer on my sofa, and now she's driving and getting ready for college. It happens in the blink of an eye I tell you.

Her cousin turned 16 only 18 days after she did. They are best friends, and I'm so grateful for that. They understand each other more than anyone else. They share a grandmother, and their parents are siblings. Who better to complain about your annoying parents than your cousin who just gets it.

I've been photographing them together since they first met at only a few days old. They have grown into pretty amazing people, if I say so myself. Life with them in it is just better.
