It’s always such an honor when people I know approach me to photograph them and their little ones. This session was no exception. I met Kayla on the first day of kindergarten, and we were quickly best friends. This lasted through elementary school. We saw each other through dance recitals, cheerleading, and summers spent exploring the outdoors from sunrise to sundown.

Everyone with a drop of mountain blood running through their veins agrees that summer is meant for being outdoors. Boone folks know to soak up all the summertime we can, because before we all know a winter is just around the corner...
