I started with this beautiful first group of spokesmodels about 18 months ago. What I didn’t know then, is how much of a HUGE influence they were going to have on my life and how much of my heart they would end up capturing. These now graduated high school seniors have become family. From late night text messages, to dinner dates together and traveling what seems like all over the world (literally!) Three of them were the beginning of my “destination” shoots, my original 6 got to experience a styled session and over the course of the past year we have experienced so many incredible things together. After each spokesmodel’s individual session we’ve finished, I’ve sent them each a questionnaire. Some of them have made it on to the blog, others will be revealed over the remainder of the summer. But what truly amazes me, is all that they have accomplished in just this short amount of time. I look back to this first shoot in Crestline and can’t believe how much they have all changed since then. From not only physical appearance but personalities as well. They’ve grown into such accomplished and incredible young people, my heart is so full.
To my spokesmodels, THANK YOU doesn’t even begin to express how grateful I am to have you all in my life. While some of you are going to college and/or starting careers others are traveling cross country and seeing what the world holds for you. You all walk very different paths in life and have very different ending goals but one thing you have in common, is you have all walked that stage, you have all received your diploma and you are all beginning a new chapter. My advice to you: cherish the moments and explore life. Be open to new experiences, be ready for change, take a risk and make every goal and desire possible… happen! Now is your chance to be who you’ve always wanted to be. Embrace the unknown and never stop working towards your dreams.
Thank you, for filling my heart for the last 18 months. Thank you for allowing me to love you like my own. Thank you for giving me a reason to smile everyday. Thank you for believing in me when we first started all of this. Thank you for pouring your heart out to me and never being scared of a new adventure. You have left your legacy for so many that will come after you and you will all forever hold such an incredibly special place in my heart. Please know that my door is always open and my phone is always on. I will always be here for you, I will always listen to you, I will always care about you. I will always love you.
The world is waiting. Go and get it. <3
