These girls belong to a wonderful Young Women’s Program for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I had the wonderful opportunity of photographing these girls who got to spend their senior year together but some of them have grown up together for years! I know most of their moms actually from growing up and I was friends with their brother’s actually who are closer to me in age so it’s amazing to see how fast time flies and how beautiful these girls have grown inside and out. Now they are grown and “graduated” that program since they graduated high school but I know it is long lasting in their hearts.
I remember my time in this same Young Women’s program and I owe it everything. Everything the leaders taught me was amazing and I formed long-lasting friendships. I love what the program stands for too. Every Sunday these girls recited (and so did I back in the day) this theme and I love everything about it.
Young Women’s Theme
“WE ARE DAUGHTERS of our Heavenly Father, who loves us, and we love Him. WE WILL “STAND as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places” (Mosiah 18:9) as we strive to live the Young Women values, which are:
Faith • Divine Nature • Individual Worth • Knowledge • Choice and Accountability • Good Works • Integrity • and Virtue
WE BELIEVE as we come to accept and act upon these values, WE WILL BE PREPARED to strengthen home and family, make and keep sacred covenants, receive the ordinances of the temple, and enjoy the blessings of exaltation.”
So there you go! Love love love that and love love love the pictures below! Enjoy!
