Meet Rivers Smith, 91, of Amory, Mississippi. I photographed her for a feature in the Journal’s “Young at Heart” issue. She is a fabulous woman, and I aspire to be just like her as grow older. Rivers rides her bicycle through downtown Amory everyday, and hops on her ride with a running start. She also exudes kindness, sending me back to the office with moon pies she had gotten to share with all the reporters.
It’s not everyday you get to photograph your sister’s engagement photos. Let alone on the beach! I’m so excited for these two. Trevor is basically my brother-in-law already, and they have so much love for each other. They have also been together since they were 15, so they are high school sweethearts! I mean, how adorable is that? So when we were all vacationing in Hilton Head last month, we headed to the beach for their engagement session. A beautiful backdrop made even better by this beautiful couple. Love you, Sarah and Trevor.
Back in May I had an amazing opportunity to work with Reed’s to photograph local models for their summer advertising campaign. We walked around downtown Tupelo and had such a great time with the shoot. HUGE shout out to Keely and Lucia with Reed’s for all of their help that day, and for just being awesome people :) Thanks Reed’s!
