When I first met Rachel, roughly 5 years ago, she was a snobby little girl at the dance studio I worked at. Over the years, I have become quite close to Rachel, her sister, and her very wonderful mom. They are the type of friends everyone needs in life, a friend to lean on, to laugh with, to cry with. When I left the dance studio 18 months ago, one of my biggest fears was losing contact with them. Why did I ever worry? I have seen them about once a month to catch up or to go to Disneyland. And since I got my new camera, Rachel has been my always willing model. Here are a few of my favorites from her senior activities: prom and graduation. Enjoy! My dear sweet Rachel, I am just so proud of all that you accomplished this past year. It was truly an honor to be invited to be at your graduation, to witness your valedictorian speech, and to see the hope for the future in your eyes. Thank you for asking me to take your photos for both graduation and your senior prom. This past year and a half getting to know you all
Over the past few months I have been trying to figure out more and more about photography. Thankfully, I've had a few ladies (and a baby) who have been open/willing to letting me take five minutes for each photo just so I can figure out all the settings and angles. It's been so fun! Here's just a few from around Disneyland—taken in some obscure places, do you know where in the parks these were taken? Thanks to my friend Courtney for the title of this blog post!
