Let me talk about Noelle for a little bit. I first met her at my wedding almost three years ago, she was the cutest second shooter I've ever seen and little did I know how freaking talented and amazing she is. (No, like seriously, check her out) and if you don't already die from her IG feed you can hear her sing right here (yup, I'm mostly adding this hyperlink so I have easy access back to it all the time, she's sooo good) She's the creator of Alpine Northwest, which I attended, and that's how these stunner images came to be. Yeah, she does a lot, and it's all really amazing, and then she gets in front of the camera and just kills it too, so it's not even fair but she's so kindhearted that you can't help but love the crap out of her. I should probably be her hypewoman by this point, Noelle hire me. I'm yours. JK apparently I do it for free. XOXO ;)
Ah my heart! I've known this little-not-so-little-now boy since he was young! AND NOW- look at him. He's GROWN, and TALL, and SMART, and HANDSOME, and graduating high school. I grew up around Chike's family, and they are awesome. I hadn't seen them in years when I arrived at their home for this shoot, and instantly his mom was offering me dinner and his family was giving me hugs. I've said it before, but thats one of the best things about my job. It helps me stay connected with people. Life is crazy and it moves, and we move with it, and getting to reconnect with this family for this shoot made me so genuinely happy. Grateful to have had the opportunity to photography this handsome guy and reconnect with such an amazing family!
