Every so often my friend Lauren (Lauren Seidel Photography) and I get together and have a "photographer play-date" - you know because when you are friends/photographers that's what you do when you hang out lol! Anyways, I was responsible for finding us a couple of models for our shoot. As a high school teacher, this gives me a great advantage. I instantly thought of Miss Haeley...
This little lady is beautiful inside and out! It's not every day you find someone this pretty who is a sweetheart to boot. I think she was a little nervous starting out (as can be expected - it's a little intimidating when you have not just one but TWO photographers in your face lol), but you couldn't tell it one bit! Haeley totally rocked her session, and we walked away with so many BEAUTIFUL images! Oh my goodness - I'm having a hard time picking out favorites! Seriously check these out - isn't she just gorgeous!?
Thank you Miss Haeley for braving the cold (it was freezing by the time we got done) and hanging out with us! We had a blast! :)
Every so often my friend Lauren (Lauren Seidel Photography) and I like to get together to have "photography play-dates" - you know because when you are friends/photographers that's what you do! I was responsible for coming up with some models for our shoot. I have a wonderful advantage - I'm a high school teacher so I get to work with some sweet young ladies that would be perfect for something like this! I asked Miss Lilly if she'd be interested, and she was so excited! (I was excited too!). We met up town and spent a couple hours just walking around the square taking pictures! It was so much fun!
Lilly was the perfect model - she is sweet and beautiful to boot! When I came back to school this week after shooting over the weekend, we were talking about her pictures second hour (the period she has me for American History). I told her boyfriend how good she did and showed them one of my sneak peeks I had edited. "Ain't she pretty?" I asked him to which he replied, "She's gorgeous!" (They are so cute!) :)
Thank you Lilly for braving the cold and hanging out with us! :)
This sweet little feller is getting so big! I had a great time hanging out with the Varner kids (as I always do)! I love this little guy and getting to watch him grow! What a cutie!! :)

"Happiness is being married to your best friend"
I had a blast hanging out with these two over the weekend. It was a beautiful day (68 degrees in January!), an awesome location (great job Caleb!), and most importantly a couple that is absolutely crazy about each other!
I can't wait to document their special day as they become husband and wife in May!! :)
