I'm thankful for friends who support my creativity and allow me to capture them as I see them. Even if that means sweating prefusely in 100 degree heat with heavy humidity (at 7pm!) and your beautiful curls falling out the minute you hit the river. That's Lauren. She started out a stranger to me just over a year ago when she inquired about me photographing her & Clayton's wedding last October. Since then, we've gone on a bazillion coffee dates, walks filled with deep and personal talks, exchanged clothes, and have most recently become each other's gym companion. I freaking love this girl.
Beauty isn't in what we do to ourselves on the outside. It's what's inside that radiates outwardly and continues to shine.
