“From the moment Marley Rae picked up a camera, I knew she had something special,” she wrote. “Watching her grow as a budding photographer and artist has been absolute splendor. She took this picture today [of] her daddy while he was in his zone and she was in her’s. I love my life I love my Sterling.”
