Special Memories | Alyssa Harris Senior Portraits

Today is a special day. It’s my brother’s birthday and the day that this special young lady, his daughter Alyssa, leaves home and heads off to college. Where has the time gone?

We figure 18 years was long enough to wait for a vacation like that so we plan to do it again soon. Everyone had a fabulous time and we’re looking forward to going back soon.
