There are so many areas of my life that have come full circle since I started my photography business- and seeing old friends is one of the things I have loved most about this job. Photography has allowed my to re-connect with so many amazing ladies that I have known throughout my life and from so many different stages and times. Some of my brides I have known since high school, or they went to school with my sister/cousins, some from college, some from my days as a Young Life leader at ECU/Cabarrus County/Rowan County. Each of these connections brings something so special to my relationships with my clients/friends. Andrea I knew from the time she was a sophomore in high school. I am reminded of football games, volleyball games and just a really sweet time with her and her group of girl friends that I came to know as a YL leader. Seems like an eternity ago! I love seeing all the successes Andrea has had since that time- and this HUGE success, finding a true love! They are adorable. Truly. We had a blast on our shoot. One thing I love about Andrea is that she really celebrates other people...when I would show her photos on the back of the camera...instead of picking herself apart, or being worried about her hair....she immediately just looked at Steven and was oohing and ahhing over him(as Steven dies at this memory going public;)). But really, it was just perfectly sweet- and that really sums them up. Here are some favs. I went overboard, and was having a love affair with Black and Whites today, so threw lots of those in there, too. Happy Thursday!
