I've known this young lady since she was six years old.
I met her family at a church I began to attend.
Kate......or allow me to call her Kate...was the "church baby."
She readily greeted each individual with a smile that would hug you from a mile away it seemed.
I immediately fell in love with her spunky ways and boisterous laugh.
With days in the past filled with loads of laughter and jokes that she would use, at any given moment, to impress a crowd.......... yes, even at the age of six..... she begins a new journey.
Now, with a college degree behind her......as we celebrated with her this grand event.........at the University of Texas.
In just a few short days, we will celebrate an event grander event.......her wedding day.
The following images are a few of this past saturday as I followed her with my lens, while she gracefully walked across a platform that represented
volumes of education.......only then to receive her diploma of her most recent venture in her life.
The band begins to play the first sounds as the line up of the graduates file in.
The seated dignitaries......they look so intimidating.
With a smile of relief........
Now, a wave in the opposite direction.....with relief spelt all over it.
At last......the official family portrait....with the up coming addition.....the Groom to Be!
This following image is a tribute to the orange sox.....Kate's dad....standing on the left.....wore to commemorate her graduation.
Yes, the guy on the right.......is MY guy. MY Bubba!
The two of them together can be an adventure! They are both natural born comedians.
Thanks for stopping by to read.....I apologize for not having written in a while...but, life happens in this little Roger's family.
More to come.......
Over and out,
