If there is a good description for Bekki, it has to be "Superwoman."
Would you just look at her? Working full time, US Air Force veteran, good wife and mother - to five kids! - and Bekki handily graduated from the Haslam School of Business at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.
Bekki's mom hand stitched the motto that is on top of her mortarboard: I believed I could, so I did.
The afternoon sun promised by the weather station never emerged from behind the gloom but no matter - Bekki's smile was enough to light up the shoot.! I am honored to be able to photograph a woman of such strength and fortitude.
Way to go, Bekki!
