Juleeanna first modeled for me with her sister, Kayleigh, in 2014 – almost a decade ago. Those first sessions, years into working as a professional photographer, changed how I saw my work. I left the state months later, and by some wonderful twist of fate arrived home just in time for Kayleigh’s prom and graduation. I was honored to be there with my camera, and again when Juleeanna was entering her senior year. I’ve watched so many clients grow up in front of my camera, I love to get to know those little humans I first met, as the incredible adults they have become.
Juleeanna told me she would love to model again if I ever needed one – and when I said I wanted to start shooting vintage clothing, she was the first to arrive, boyfriend in tow. Carson claimed he didn’t want to be in photos, but he arrived ready. We had so much fun, as always, playing with the thrifted outfits I had strewn through my storage unit. We made memories.
