I know that I broke some big blogging rules by having almost 70+ images in one post, but this was more about telling a story perfectly, and I couldn’t cut a part out!! (Even the outtakes because they’re hilarious) I love every part of this shoot that I had with Taylor this past week. And if you can’t tell, I tried a new style!! And we had a blast! These pictures aren’t quite the typical “light and airy” look that I try and go for and I’m loving it. I’ll be doing this more often.
A little about Taylor! She just started up a calligraphy business called The Taylor Type! View her Facebook page HERE. (GO LIKE HER FACEBOOK PAGE NOW!!) She is so passionate and talented at what she does and I have no doubts that she will succeed in her ventures. She’s planning for her new website (stay tuned for that) and needed new images for it! I was SO flattered and stoked that she chose me to be her photographer. She has such a unique style and it was fun to try and express that style for her. Her favorite (I MEAN FAVORITE) band ever to exist is The Civil Wars, explaining the records. The tattoo on her arm is brand spankin’ new. The numbers symbolize the date of her baptism in 2005, the day that she “has truly never been the same”. I know what she means. And she also just cut her hair last week!!
Next month marks two years of our friendship. Why do I know the exact date? Because we had to fight for it. To say the least, we have a very dramatic and scandalous past and I know without a doubt that I have caused her more pain than almost anyone in her life. We finally hit a breaking point two years ago and decided to finally get past our past. But that’s the cool thing, we didn’t just get past it— we broke free from it and flourished in a new relationship. I can confidently say now that it was the second most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. Jesus molded both of our hearts at the right time and softened them to give and receive forgiveness like never before. The best thing now is that people think that we’re sisters because we resemble one another. Wow. I can’t tell you how much that flatters me. haha.
So these images mean more to me than just new portraits of a lovely girl. They’re a celebration and a great remembrance of everything that we have overcome together. I simply cannot narrow them down anymore. They’re too special for me not to share as many as I want. She’s a beauty, isn’t she?! Happy two year friendiversary, Taylor!
