I met Elisa my freshman year at Baylor. Since then, we've worked at camp together, shared a room, road-tripped, camped and ran the Bearathon together.
Elisa is generous, patient and wonderful to talk with. I've grown to appreciate the fact that she's my complete opposite, and through our friendship I've learned a lot about myself and others. I appreciate the fact that she takes time to think before she speaks, loves people through quiet acts of service, and is faithful to always keep her word. It's been an honor to share life with her.
A few days ago Elisa left Waco and will be doing a four year International Development graduate school program at Denver University. I'm going to miss going knowing I can ride my bike to Lula Jane's with her, but I'm so proud of her for pursing the dreams God has given her.
Sarah is energetic, hilarious and doesn't take herself too seriously. On the norm, Sarah can be found juggling a million different responsibilities, slightly in shambles, and laughing the whole time. Grateful I'm going to be in Waco with her next year :)
Paige and I met in 7th grade and have been friends ever since. We've experienced middle school, high school and college together; shared awkward stages and supported each other through life's ups and downs. She's kind of like my third sister--especially because we steal each other's clothes and food and we show up in each other's rooms unannounced. Paige is the kindest, most quirky and adorable souls you will ever meet. For example, one of her favorite places to eat is Luby's and she's one of the few people I know who would pass up a real meal for a bowl of Blue Bell any day.
Also, shout out to Paige for being my little model through my years of photography. Check out the high school senior portraits I took for her four years ago: here and here We've both grown a lot since then. ;)
I shot some portraits for my friend Sam. We explored some new areas downtown and found some cool spots. I would have never assumed a parking garage hallway could have such awesome lighting!
Sam is awesome and I am so interested to see where he's at in five years. He loves people so well and has the unique gift to turn some of the most shambly and random situations into hilarious, wonderful memories.
