Alexis is my friend Angela’s oldest of four children.  There is a 7 year gap between Alexis and the next oldest sibling.  While the rest of us were partying and living carefree lives in our early 20’s, Angela was working a full time job while raising this little girl.  She told me she would be lying if she said that it wasn’t hard.  But she always called Alexis “Her Precious Gem”.  She was more than happy to leave the old life behind to become Alexis’s mom.  And 18 years later her hard work has paid off.  Alexis is beautiful on the outside, but don’t be quick to judge her for that.  She is also a humble kind person on the inside who loves God, her Mom and Dad, her little sister Jessica, and little brothers Nathaniel and Zachery with all of her heart.

Alexis is a perfectionist and not a big fan of the dirt.  She has been that way her whole life.  Her mom Angela tells me stories about her including that she potty trained herself at 18 months because she coudln’t stand the whole diaper thing.  So thank you Alexis for trusting me and getting dressed up in heals and hiking through the desert for some senior pics.  Hope it was worth it for you!:-)

I asked Alexis to bring something that was sentimental to her to our session.  The cross is a gift from her late Uncle and the stuffed animal is a gift she received from her mom the day she started college.  She says they both give her strength and inspiration.  Her mom told me she chose the stuffed animal  as a reminder to herself that no matter how old Alexis is she will always be her little girl . . .

Alexis, like her mom, is truly a sweetie on the inside. I love her with all my heart. We are all blessed that Dave came into our lives when Alexis was just a little girl. Angela and Dave had a wonderful family and they are great parents. I am the lucky grandma.
Now you just watch Alexis take off. She has much to discover in her future. You go girl. Love you.
