Berenice’s 27th birthday session was a blessing for ME. Although several friends offered to take pictures for her, her heart wanted to support a small business effected by the COVID-19 pandemic. BLESS HER SOUL!!! Isn’t that the sweetest thing?! I never stop being surprised at how the photography industry continues to bring me to such good-hearted people like Berenice!
She’s has been thriving in America as a Mexican immigrant since she was 12-years-old! She has been making the most of every opportunity ever since. Her days are filled with studying for Nursing school and caring for residents as a Certified Nurses’ Assistant at an assisted living facility. I’m confident she does her job with a huge smile, even though she gets mistaken by some residents as their girlfriend, ha! What a trooper! I know that she’s endured plenty of hardships, but during my entire time with her during her birthday session, I only heard gratitude. It was so refreshing!
The week leading up to the session, we kept scouting out a field hoping that it wouldn’t be mowed before Berenice’s birthday session. We were so relieved that it remained untouched, because the grass and clovers were the perfect foreground and backdrop. We were even blessed with a pastel-painted sky towards the end of our time together! By the end, we were quite sweaty and swatting away bugs, but so worth being there for that sunset!
Berenice, I hope you love these previews from your 27th birthday session as much as I do. Your genuine smile is infectious, and your soul is one to be admired. You’re going to touch so many lives as a Nurse! You are a human worth celebrating a million times! Thanks for being YOU! I hope I get to see you again in the Fall! 🙂
