My dear friend Caitlin is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful people I know. She is certainly exquisite on the outside, as these pictures show, but her true beauty glows from deep within her soul, like a iridescent gem created by pressure and heat and with an overwhelming flood of God's cooling grace.
Recently, Caitlin has begun a battle with cancer. But what inspired me the most when I visited her a few weeks ago was her continual spark for life, beauty, and for exuberantly loving all of those around her. While many of the following pictures focus just on Caitlin with no one else in the picture, I want you to take note of the fact that in each one, she is interacting with other people. And truly, that is the best time to photograph her, because that is when the love of God shines out of her the most.
