With just a small window on the same continent before she went off to college, it was a challenge to pull off Karis’ senior shoot. When I saw that the props she brought along were books and mugs, I was delighted. A kindred spirit! We chatted about literature and coffee and life between two cultures. Her mom and her best friend tagged along to help with hair and wardrobe changes, and I could sense their joy-tinged-sorrow as they celebrated Karis and prepared to say farewells. This endearing young lady has a bright future ahead of her, with loving friends and family cheering her on!
