Hannah // portraits

Her name is Hannah and she's the kind of friend you laugh with at one in the morning over something that's not even that funny.  The kind of friend who texts you Bible verses, goes last minute Christmas shopping with you, and lets you take photos of her.  One of those friends you would never want to lose.  We spent a few hours having lunch (at McDonalds, because we're cheap) and taking photos.  My favorite way to take photos is being able to talk through the whole thing, so that I can catch the spontaneous laughs and genuine smiles.  It's what I love to do.  And this shoot with my gorgeous friend was so much fun!  Enjoy!

  3. All of these pictures are beautiful Olivia. I started to count my favorites but then began to realize that they each have an aspect to them that I like. Your photography is lovely, and having a friend like that to take pictures with is such a blessing. :))

    Blessings, friend!
