One of the best parts of my job is getting to meet fabulous people. This mother and son are no exception. I have been fortunate to get to know them over the last couple of years as I have photographed Ty for middle school sports. Ty is a very talented athlete who not only brings skill to whatever sport his is playing, but also leadership. I have watched first hand, how he encourages his teammates to go out and give their best every single moment. I look forward to seeing everything he will accomplish as he moves on to high school. I am so glad that Tonya and I have become friends. I can not say enough about this lady, the more I know her the more I admire her. She is strong, determine, fearless and confident. Combine that with her kind heart and natural beauty, needless to say , she is amazing and I admire her. She takes any challenge and meets it head on and finds a way to overcome and triumph. She thinks of others before herself and always has kind and encouraging words. Tonya is a dedicated mother, raising a wonderful son by setting a great example. Tonya, I am blessed to know you and call you my friend. Thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon.
