The beautiful gal in these photos has been my best friend since we were in the fourth grade together. She lives in Ohio and I live in South Carolina, so we only see each other a few times a year (if we’re lucky.) During my extended trip to Ohio this summer, I got to see her twice in a one-week period, which is virtually unheard of! Just being around her makes me feel like I’m filled with sunshine and fizzy laughter, like I’m 15 again and the world is all of the perfect things that teenagers think it should be. She is a part of me, and even if we don’t share DNA, she is my family.
I got tears in my eyes while I was editing her session, seeing the joy and laughter in her face when she was with her family. I got to shoot this session about a week after their one-year wedding anniversary, so it was a very special time for them. I love you, M!
Here are just a few shots from the evening. I hope you love them as much as I do!
