I’ve known Rowan for a long time, and have basically watched her grow up. A few weeks ago, for the third year running, I got to shoot her prom photos. It’s hard to believe she’s so grown up, but time doesn’t wait around, does it?
I love this shot of her because it captures her so very well. It’s Rowan in a nutshell. When I showed it to her mom, my best friend Beverly, she said, “She is fierce!”, and I thought, “Yep. That’s the perfect title.”
I’m rather in awe of the woman she’s becoming, but it’s also hard to not see the child I’ve known so long. She’s both things in my head at the same time. People are complicated concepts, I suppose. She’s little and she’s grown. She’s cute and she’s beautiful. She’s small and she’s big. She’s adorable.
And she is fierce.
