When I first met Stephani I truly had to gain her trust because she was such a private person (she even told me so) and I respected that. After the first session we had with her several months ago I think we became best of friends. So, when the final day came for me to photograph her 16th birthday, we were on the same page. She was nervous and I was excited for her because this was her BIG DAY, and I wanted her to never forget it through the pictures that I took.
My hat goes off to her mom, Blondell, and her family for making this for what will be one of the most memorable days of her life! The following images speaks volumes for what a wonderful venue she celebrated her party at along with family and friends.
