Isabella, or "Isa" as we call her, is my beautiful 11-year-old cousin. When her mom was pregnant with her everyone thought she would be a boy, but I just knew that Isa was meant to come into this world. She is such a smart, kind, loving, creative and generous soul and the world would not be the same without her in it. I've been documenting her since she was little and would call me "Ocole". I'm extremely proud of the young girl she has grown up to be. I know she will achieve anything she puts her mind to and I can't wait to see what the future holds for her.
