ulie was an Independent Learning teacher at my former high school, Valley Charter High School in Modesto, CA. Although she was never my teacher, she treated me as if I was her own student: supportive, loving, and encouraging. We never kept in touch that often since my graduation in 2013, but when I saw her name come across my desk I knew exactly who she was and what she had meant to me during my high school years- always passionate for her students. Catching up with each other’s lives, I told her about my photography business to which she responded with absolute joy in her desire to have her family photos taken! I was thrilled and honored to have met her two kiddos, Shyanne & Wyatt. We had fun with smiles, laughs, and silliness. Despite their rejections, this is a photogenic family right here!
