Shine, Girl, Shine

"She is clothed with strength and dignity, 
and she laughs without fear of the future. 
When she speaks, her words are wise, 
and she gives instructions with kindness."

PROVERBS 31: 25-26


This verse is hanging in my daughter's room.  I painted the canvas a couple years ago when she entered Middle School and we were giving her room a makeover...I wanted her to know WHO she is and hopefully spur her on to be WHO she was to become...

...like Jesus!

The middle school years can be tough to navigate...there are a lot of changes going on...and girls this age think a lot more deeply about things than we often give them credit...They are watchful and take everything in...They can laugh so hard that they cry...and they can cry so hard, that they don't think they can take another breath...so deep are the emotions that flow...

I've done sessions like this with my daughters many times...and I love them...not just because it's FUN...duh!!!  But, it's a time where WHO they are starts to shine...little glimpses of the choices they will make...small steps towards independence...

For my niece's birthday, I decided I'd do a little session for her as well...with a couple school friends...to commemorate her last year of middle school...

I've shared lots of single images on INSTAGRAM and FACEBOOK...

I thought you'd enjoy this video slideshow to see the whole "story"!

Happy Birthday Kendel...you know Aunt Colleen loves ya!
