This girl right here holds a special place in my heart as she has been my best friend since the fifth grade. She was my very first model when I decided I wanted to pursue photography and begin building my portfolio, and she has supported me ever since. (Stay tuned to my #FlashbackFriday blogs and you’ll get to view our photography/model relationship for the past 8-9 years). She recently graduated Augusta State University as a dental hygienist and I couldn’t be more proud of her. I’m thankful I get to capture all of her special moments as she has vowed to only use me as her photographer for all special occasions (her engagement, wedding, maternity, family, etc) … (side note: she hasn’t read this blog yet). But in all seriousness, this girl is such a beauty and wonderful best friend and I’m so thankful that we’ve gotten to walk through life together even though we’ve had miles between us. I love you sweet girl!
