At long last...

...Miss Kaitlyn is a senior. I've shot her since she was in junior high school. An image of her that I shot was featured on the cover of BECU advertisement -- and now she's getting ready to graduate this year!

Kaitlyn has always had a special place in my heart since I asked her to speak at a Relay For Life team captain meeting when she was just 13 or so. She stood up in front of 100+ people to explain why she Relays. Speaking from her heart about people she loves who have cancer, she moved everyone in the room. Team Captains were literally handing her cash by the time she was done. Since then, she's raised $1000+ each year to be a K-Club member. Smart and funny, she is an exceptional young woman.

So proud of you, Mini K, and loved shooting you as you finish high school!

Enjoy the sneak peek! :)

And Mini-K with her mama...

Great photos of what sounds like a wonderful young woman.

For anyone who needs a reminder of what Relay for Life is all about, check out this video -- -- about one woman’s “aha moment” when she realized the remarkable impact of Relay and the American Cancer Society and dedicated herself to doing all she could for the cause. I think you’ll enjoy it and hope you’ll also check out the rest of the site, which was created by Mutual of Omaha to highlight inspirational stories and “aha moments” of all kinds.
