I have gotten so close to this sweet family and they truly have a heart of gold .. each one of them!! It’s hard to believe Rachel, their youngest is as young as she is because she looks so mature. She’s truly growing into a beauty and is as sweet as she is pretty! She really makes weeds on the side of the road look beautiful! I love the fact that we were able to squeeze in some dance photos before the group shoot also because one of my favorites from her session, came from those! It’s truly magical! Rachel, I just love working with you and I’m sad that it will be about 3 or 4 years until you come back as one of my Senior models! We will have to arrange something in between these shoots!!
Katie is one special young lady! I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph her several times, and have gotten to know her over the last few years, and I can personally tell you - she has a heart of gold!!! She (and her sister and Mother) are some of the most thoughtful, considerate people that you will ever want to meet! Katie’s bubbly personality is contagious and I just knew we would have fun on her Senior shoot. Well, that’s an understatement! We spent the day together and enjoyed the art, and the downtown city in Old Town. It’s rather sad to see her conclude her Senior Model Year with me, but I’m so unbelievably excited for her bright future ahead!
Who would have thought that eight years ago when I photographed Brandon’s Senior photos, that I’d be shooting his wedding 8 years later!! What a fun, playful, and sweet relationship they have. They are so thoughtful with each other! Just little acts of kindness that I witnessed every time I was with them. I always try and hold my composure throughout each wedding ceremony, but I lost it during theirs! When they mimicked Jesus’ foot washing with each other and the humble act of service and love, just really touched me! Brandon and Kayla, it was a complete honor to be a part of your special day! Laurie, my friend (mother of the groom), you have raised a wonderful son and Brandon, you married a gem!! Venue was gorgeous! @BarnatEdgewood, Darcie & Trudy - the Wedding coordinators were incredible!! I highly recommend them! Makeup-Kara Waggoner, and Hair - Mandy B. . fabulous! Special thanks to Mandy for redoing the hair after the confetti fiasco!
