Victoria College Graduate | Ashley

Ashley came to my studio last fall. She was so excited her upcoming graduation from Victoria College in the Spring. First thing I noticed about Ashley were her eyes. Ashley's eyes almost tell the story before she does. Her eyes became sad as she told me about her struggles to go to college, how she built and sold crosses out of fence board to make money to pay for school. How she couldn't study until very late at night. She has a daughter that she wanted to be a good role model for. Tears fell as she told me her story. It was so hard. But she persevered and made it through. As she continued her story her eyes started to sparkle. She was so excited about her future!

Ashley is adorable and spunky. We had so much fun at her photo shoot - she could find fun poses without hardly any direction from me! She looked beautiful in her light blue lace dress. The color was perfect for her skin color and seemed to make her eyes shine brighter. She has an easy smile and an easy personality. When she talks about her parents - her eyes are filled with love and gratitude.
