This past Friday was bittersweet for me. It marked the day that two of my favorite teens officially entered the world of adulthood.
Marlie and Chelsea know each other through riding at Mission Horse Club, but grew up in neighboring towns. These two girls are unique, but are both talented horsewomen and wise beyond their years. Despite graduating on the same day, they were both in two different places at very similar times. Marlie was photographed at Heritage Park in Mission Chelsea was photographed at Meadow Gardens Golf Course in Maple Ridge.
These two have helped me at sessions, carried gear at weddings, babysat my little girl, been an inspiration for fashion, and been great horse-riding partners. I’m sad that I might not see them as much as they begin the craziness of life after high-school, but lucky for me both of their moms are dear friends of mine who’ll let me cry on their shoulders.
Marlie and Chelsea, congratulations. I wish both of you luck, love and much success.
