Becca Stephens: Senior 2012

It’s been a crazy whirlwind of a summer and there are so many things I could talk about but right now this post is a shout out to my girl Becca Stephens!  I love this girl and am so blessed to have had the opportunity to hang out and grab some photographs with her this summer. Watch out, hot stuff ahead! ūüôā

Senior 2011: Sam Akers

Sam is about to graduate from Faith Academy. Yes, that’s right, he’s the slacker that had yet to get any sort of senior photograph. WOOO way to go, Sam!! ūüôā No, really, Sam’s a great kid that I’ve had the pleasure to get to know in my short times here since he was in 8th grade. He’s got a true heart for the Lord which you can see as he leads worship and the joy that’s evident in his smile. This kid plays a mean guitar and is currently playing the role of Rooster in Annie. I can’t wait to see the amazing things that he’ll go on to do. Congrats Sam.

it’s 3am, do you know where your camera is?

i could chalk being a night owl up to left over to residual effects¬†of college life but that would not exactly be the truth. i’ve always been¬†a child of the night. i always get most motivated right around midnight.¬†i don’t understand it but i’ve learned to embrace it. and take others with¬†me whenever possible! muahhaha!

Senior 2010: Ben Daron

but first, a story…
once upon a time there was a nice girl out on a beautiful¬†fall day. she was minding her own business and taking some¬†super hot photographs when along came a cow. then along¬†came a few more cows. but the cows did not mind their own¬†business, the cows bit her butt…

and a boy named Ben laughed at the poor innocent girl.
the end. Read More
