It is my friend's birthday today, so I thought this would be a good time to share this post.
AK (or Katie, known to pretty much everyone else) is one of the precious friends I made unexpectedly last summer while traveling overseas. I helped lead a group of university students around Italy and Spain and AK came along with her mom Amy, the director of the study abroad program. Amy also became a dear mentor and close friend.
AK is currently a senior in high school. Last summer was the prime time for her senior portraits. When better to take senior photos than while traveling around Italy and Spain with a professional photographer! I loved photographing AK but I especially enjoyed getting to know her during our adventures.
Happy Birthday AK! I am proud to know you and call you friend.
