My Class of 2016 Model Team has definitely been a group that has left an imprint on my heart. I have enjoyed getting to know these ladies and having them in front of my lens. I know that they're destined for great things (regardless of the world's standards). I pray that they stay true to themselves and remember our fun times together!!
We got together (FINALLY, after trying several times to coordinate a date) for a fun farewell shoot in downtown Danville. I wanted to photograph them in their caps and gowns, as well as in a tshirt representing the college they plan to attend! It was kinda hot, but they were troopers and we all had fun:) Gosh, I miss these girls already!
Check out this mini-film of our shoot in downtown Danville.
Brianna was such a fab model and was thrilled to be a part of the model team! She quickly made friends with everyone, was always eager, and I will never forget her smile! Love you, Bri!
Bri's quote of choice as she moves forward to continue her education at Averett University is:
"Blessed are those who see beautiful things in humble places where others see nothing." -Camille Pissarro
Emmalee has been a model for 2 years (was a Junior model last year) and was always eager to assist me whenever I needed someone! I sure hope that we can schedule in a time to grab a Brown Sugar Cinnamon shake from Brewed Awakening sometime soon!
Emmalee plans to attend Lynchburg College in the fall AND continue to pursue her love of dance. Her quote of choice:
"You can never be overdressed or overeducated." -Oscar Wilde
Kaitlyn has the most amazing hair and I will always think of our fake snow shoot whenever I think of her!! We had so many laughs that day:) She has a great family and I know that great things are in store for her!
Kaitlyn is headed to UVA this fall and shared:
"Now is the time for all of us to become the people we have always dreamed of being. This is your world. You're here. You matter. The world is waiting."
-Haley James Scott, One Tree Hill
Kayley is such a ray of sunshine...even when it rains for her shoot! (You can check out her rainy day shoot here). She loves my kids (and they love her) and I will be forever thankful to have had our paths cross. She has left an imprint on them and me that will never be forgotten!
Kayley is headed to Averett this fall, and her chosen quote was:
"Cause your story's far from over and your journey's just begun."
Leah is such a glowing, huge ball of personality and I will love her forever! She is a pageant queen, model extraordinaire, and has a really amazing family too! She can be indecisive at times, but I'm confident that she will trust God's plan for her and has a very bright future ahead!
Leah is off to UVA this fall, and shared this quote:
"So don't be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble and fall, cause most of the time, the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most. Maybe you'll get everything you wish for. Maybe you'll get more than you ever could have imagined. Who knows where life will take you. The road is long and in the end, the journey is the destination."
-Coach Whitey Durham, One Tree Hill
Lindsey is one of the strongest people I know. She has faced huge challenges, and despite the struggles, still has a smile on her face. Lindsey was this year's fashionista...she was always decked out perfectly, accessories and all! She has such an amazing family, and I can't wait to see what God does with her!
Lindsey will be attending DCC this fall, and shared this quote:
"Life is a journey and only YOU hold the key."
Sydney is a fighter. I've had seen her overcome obstacles, and I know that she will continue to do so! I have loved working with her and her Grandmother throughout this past year. They are some of the sweetest people ever! I know that Sydney is destined for greatness:)
Sydney is off to Averett this fall and shared this quote:
"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
Even though Abby didn't make it to our farewell shoot, I can't forget about her! Abby is such a sweet soul...I am thankful to have had you on the team, Abby!
Abby's quote of choice is "Today is where your book begins, the rest is still unwritten."
One of Abby's images was selected to be the cover image for my 2017 Senior Magazine.
Gonna miss you all....time to implement a model alumni program of some sort to get us all back together again!
Coming soon: a blog post all about the new Class of 2017 Model Crew!
