Congratulations Lindsay!

Lindsay celebrated her graduation not in Switzerland where she attended high school, but at her beautiful home on Sullivan's Island. I loved meeting her and the family. We had a beautiful night to enjoy the neighborhood and the nearby beach for some photos with her cap and gown. I even had the pleasure of taking a few family shots. Congratulations Lindsay!
