the one with Kayli, LCHS Grad 2017

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing Miss Kayli.  I've watched her grow up at Cooper and turn into this gorgeous girl!  You will see her happy and smiling all over this blog post, but if you know her, you know the struggle.  She's wanted to play basketball since her dad was a coach. And because of injury and pain and a recently diagnosed nerve disease, her dream is over.  One of them anyway.  Something tells me that there's quite a few more dreams left to dream.
