My Girls’ School Pictures 2007-2008

Youngest first! These school portraits provide snapshots in time when my three daughters dove into life. The originals were destroyed when our home burned down in 2010, so these are digitalized copies from those halcyon days before the fire.

All photos are from the Seattle Public Schools in the northern half of Seattle, Washington. Enjoy.

Talia Katayama (now Bass), my beautiful, talented, and sensitive stepdaughter since before her birth. I helped deliver her at home on the floor and helped raised her up, too.
