this picture was taken in Copey, Costa Rica, this past March, when she and her brother, Jude, were visiting.
My daughter, Phoenix, celebrates her 23rd birthday today. It just seems impossible... I feel like I was just 23 myself... funny how that happens!
I just found out on Monday that Phoenix has been accepted to a competitive two-month Wildlife & Adventure Photography Internship in South Africa!! She doesn't leave until October 2014, so she has time to save up for this incredible opportunity. And in the meantime, she's getting lots of portrait photography bookings. Looks like things are falling into place for my little girl... okay, not so little anymore... for my beautiful, talented, self-motivated, determined daughter. And it looks like she will set foot on every continent if she keeps going at this rate! She's already been to most provinces in Canada, to New Zealand (two weeks, at 16), Japan (on month, at 17), Brazil (seven weeks, at 21), Costa Rica (one week, at 22)... and now she will be adding South Africa to her roster... and she'll be doing what she loves most... photography. I'm such a proud mama!
