• Meet Hannah

Michael and I met the youth at our church for the first time, it was a little overwhelming. SO many teenagers and so many names to remember.  I tend to be pretty bad with names but I will remember RANDOM things about everyone that I meet. When it came to Hannah, I remembered her hair.  We had a conversation the first time we met about how she straightened her hair and that just stuck with me for some reason! The second time I saw her… I immediately thought “Oh, she’s the one that straightened her hair” and I immediately remembered our whole conversation. So Hannah started out as the “girl with straight hair”

and has since turned into “Hannah, one of my great friends”.  She’s been around and involved in what seems like everything that last two+ years and I’ve really gotten to know this girl! The more I get to know her, the more I love her and I’m still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that she’s going to be getting ready to apply for COLLEGE soon!! WHAT?! Hannah was starting her sophomore year when I first met her with her straight hair and now she’s a senior and more beautiful than ever. I LOVED my time with her as we walked up and down a few blocks of Main Street and shot her senior portraits. Our friend Mallory joined us for the occasion and we were quite entertained with the characters that were walking up and down the streets.  We passed all sorts of people… some were normal…and some were singing at the top of their lungs as they walked home from school/work. That’s RVA for ya! We took advantage of this unique part of town and I have to say that I LOVE what we found! Enjoy my favorites and Hannah, I love you girl! I’m so proud of you and the woman you’ve become the last two years! I’m praying this year doesn’t fly by because I’m not ready for you to go to school!!!
