Last Friday, before Joe and Ciara's rehearsal, Meghan (remember her and her friends from last month?) and I drove out to Thousand Hills State Park to take her senior photos!! :D

Aaah, this girl has grown up into such a gorgeous, fun, and happy young lady and I'm so thankful to God that we're sisters in the Lord too :) :). Hooray for graduating in 2019!!

I've photographed J.R. and Jessica for four years and it never gets old :D. They just celebrated their 6th wedding anniversary and it's such an encouragement to see their love, playfulness, friendship, and trust in the Lord stay constant <3.

J.R. and Jessica, hanging out with y'all yesterday and photographing your love was worth all the humidity. Hahaha. Thank y'all again for trusting me with this honor four years in a row!! <3

Robert and Madison: engagement sneak peek :D :D {mt. pleasant, tx engagement photographer}



Aaaaah, last night's engagement session of these two was the beeeest! <3 <3

Madison (a fellow photographer) and I became online friends 4 years ago, met for the first time last February when she shadowed me at a wedding, and then yesterday I got to meet her fiancé Rob (who I've also been online friends with for about 4 years) and capture them as an engaged couple!!

 It was such an honor, joy, and SUPER fun to do this for them and I'm so happy God brought them together :D :D

Hannah, Meghan, and Rachel: friendship shoot sneak peek :D {downtown mt. pleasant, tx portrait phogographer}




After I shared Emma, Olivia, and Rachel's friendship shoot/creative project last month, my adorable friend/honorary cousin Meghan (who I've known her entire 17 years of life) asked about doing a friendship shoot in May when she and her best friend Hannah were coming down to Texas to visit Rachel! I was so thrilled! Friendship shoots are catching on! Yes! Haha.

And so yesterday evening, I had a downtown adventure with these gorgeous goofballs and it was a blast :D <3. Thank y'all again for asking me to do this!! <3 <3
