ASHLEY // five points portraits

ashley is my sweet friend, my very best word-of-mouth advertiser, and can make me laugh really, REALLY hard. we've had the best time growing into our relationship over the last year and are on an optimism mission together like you wouldn't believe. these were a blast to take -- basically just laughter the whole time, with me trying to remember to hit the shutter once in a while. :) hope you love your photos, pretty lady! xo.
thank you for being you, friend. love every day with you!

MISS ERIN // portraits in the foothills


i had the pleasure of leading erin in a high school youth group a few years back and have since grown to call her my friend. she is vibrant, centered and passionate about her life's possibilities. she grew up in this valley and her parents are soon moving away -- i'm so happy i got to photograph her in her element! girl's got mad style and a tendency to get the giggles like almost no one else i know. so much fun to hike around and create this art with you, erin! hope you love 'em.

beautiful, handmade necklace by mettle jewelry.
