Alessandra is my niece by friendship. Her mom Monica and I have been friends since before Al was born. I’ve had the pleasure of watching her grow up and have her calling me “Auntie Megan.” We had so much fun taking photos! She was very patient with me when it came to experimenting with my fairy lights. She asked a lot of questions and was very interested in what I was doing and why I was taking photos the way I was. She even had some ideas for photos. She might only be nine years old, but she’s the smartest nine year old I know!
