One of the best things about growing older is that moment when you realize you’re out of it and you don’t mind it.  I still love jello colored hair accents for example, but I am not certain if I am supposed to be shocked or delighted.

When we photographed Serenity Douglas, she shone as yet another Gwinnett Country Beauty Queen: 2014 Miss Archer High School of the Junior class.  Then she changed outfits and walked in with an armful of Track and Field medals.
