The first time I met her, she was selling candy with her grandmother outside of a church, and they were happy to let me photograph them for this post.
The above picture was taken at McDonald’s where we met each other once again. She is from a sweet family who travel up north to sell candy on the street, before heading home to cook and laugh and share a meal with friends. Diamonds in the rough.
I look forward to seeing her toothy grin when we meet again.
