Dana: Class of 2015

Dana is in a word: Fabulous.   She is a young woman who is filled to the brim with life. She loves Jesus and her relationship with Him has deepened her love for people. Recently, she traveled to Haiti for mission work with Friendship Baptist Church and longs to go back as soon as she can.  And she has a serious love of horses. She is going to enjoy a summer working as a groomsmen for the horses at the Greenfield Village.

So, I jumped at the chance to photograph her with one of her favorites of creation.  We had a fall session planned, but I couldn’t give up a little time under the sunshine with this beauty before we met for her downtown session.


Dana is graduating from Baptist Park in Taylor this spring. She will be heading to the David Pressley School of Cosmetolgy. With her she will bring the qualities that people just want to be around.  Her laugh is contagious. She is loyal, completely loyal to her friends.

And, she clearly looks stunning in the beautiful Michigan fall colors off Woodward Avenue and on the steps of the DIA.

Wow, was this great.
