Amanda | Portrait

Today’s post is all about the birthday girl Amanda 🙂

I met Amanda 3 years ago at a retreat for Pastors Kids (PK). There was a little “store” that the PK’s could purchase snacks & small little souvenirs that I was helping out at & Amanda had her eye on several of the little stuffed animals there. Little did I know that a little over a year later, she & her entire family would be moving to Bloomington-Normal & that her dad would become one of my  boss’s while I worked at First Assembly.

I was really looking forward to spending one on one time with Amanda & taking pictures of her! We had a beautiful sunny Saturday, probably the first really warm one of the year & I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Amanda.

We walked around Uptown Normal & talked. Amanda was a good sport & laughed at all my corny jokes 😉 And I got to hear about all her plans for her birthday party she was planning & the art piece she was entering into a festival.

(I think she’s laughing at one of my silly jokes here 😉 )

Amanda also loves running. I asked her to show me how she looks right before it’s time to speed off 🙂
