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.
