i loved growing up with cousins that are the same age. my cousins randi and kaleigh are just months apart from me … of course i’m right dab in the middle. sure we had our arguements and times when we only liked one or the other but all in all … i feel very blessed that i had these two family members as really close friends. randi actually stood up in my wedding and in my cousin kaleigh’s last friday. to this day us three girls are very close and its just so nice having family as friends. especially lately i feel like they are thee most loyal and loving friends to have … cousins and sisters.
courtney is lucky to have the same thing. her cousin laura (whom i also shot her senior pictures HERE) and courtney are best friends. like … they rely on eachother and are there for eachother no matter what. i love that. sorry to my neice irelyn because she unfortunately isn’t going to have that anytime soon … whoops.
i loved getting to know courtney and hearing about her life full of swimming! i really don’t know much about swimming … so i was so excited to shoot some pictures in the jenison high school. their pool is so nice and i was really impressed when i saw courtney’s name up on the school’s record board … twice i believe. so she must be legit ;) i almost made her jump in but we decided a few around the pool in her jacket would be good … her in her element.
