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

Emma, Olivia, and Rachel: friendship shoot :D {mt. pleasant, tx portrait photographer}




It's been a month and a day since this memorable morning and I'm so happy to be sharing it more fully with y'all!! :D

 Below we have Olivia, Emma, and Rachel. I've known Rachel pretty much her whole life and I've known of Olivia and Emma for a while and then actually met them last year (because of their best-friendship with Rachel).

For a couple years now, I've wanted to do some form of a personal, creative photography project. I kept thinking of a styled bridal shoot, or a styled wedding shoot (cause that's what most people do), but it never felt right for me and I never worked to make it happen. Then last year, I realized what I really wanted to do was a shoot of a girl that was natural, feminine, and carefree! (Three attributes I'm a great advocate of). So, I started to think of girls I knew that would embody my vision, but then spring and summer got busy, and again, I didn't make it happen.

Then I was observing through Instagram the adorable, hilarious, and beautiful trioship these three girls have and it reminded me of my incredibly dear trioship with Amanda Bowles and Allix Ruby and the unforgettable memories we made when we were their age. This was it! These were my girls! Not one, but three!!

So, in January, I wrote the three of them and proposed my idea to be executed in the early spring when the flowers were blooming. They were all in, and plans were made!! :D

March 3 came and we had the most FUN and BEAUTIFUL two hours together :D :D (and can't forget the pretend Tom Holland sightings. Hahaha)

Their stunning beauty, hysterical antics, and loving souls bring joy to everyone they meet and I can't wait to see where the Lord takes them :D. Love y'aaaaaaall! <3 <3

Seth: senior portraits sneak peek :D {paris, tx senior portrait photographer}




It's such an amazing thing to watch your young friends grow up. And it's extra special when you stay friends :D.

  I've known Seth since he was about 7 years old. For the past decade, I've watched him grow into a kind, mature, hardworking, Godly man and it makes my heart rejoice :). 

Now I'm 25, he's close to 18, and I got to take his senior photos!! :D Time has flown, but in a beautiful way :).

I so enjoyed last evening and hope y'all enjoy these sneak peeks of my friend Seth :D (and yeah, he's grown into a super handsome guy. Haha :D)
