alyssa...DAHS senior 2019

i feel like i have watched her grow up.

i knew of her "story" for years...

her daddy passed away when she was just a baby...

her mom, brother and she lived through the task of healing..and learning to live.

and then, i was taking her portraits over and over...

and now here she is...

a strong...


empowered woman.

ready to face not only her senior year, but life to come. 

"all the art of living

lies in a fine mingling

of letting go

and holding on."

beautiful, strong alyssa.
