Atkinson, Nebraska Lifestyle and Art Photographer: Illustrating Identity: "This Is Me" Photo Shoot- Session 2 {Haley and Jennifer}

Meet Haley and Jennifer.  They are BFFs.  

These two young ladies volunteered to be part of my “This Is Me” back to school photo project, and we had a blast.  After a rough start due to the fact that my camera got damaged, we managed to find a time to get together to create these beautiful images.  Let me tell you a little about these gals.

I know Jennifer from church.  Living here for 6 years, I have watched her grow into the young lady she is now.  She is active in her youth group, and she is a young lady who is willing to serve and help out those in need.  As I was taking photos, I was able to capture her bright smile, and after I snapped a few, she asked “was I wrinkling up my nose?”  I said “yes, and it was perfect!”  I just loved her sense of humor and willingness to be silly!

Now meet Haley.  I also know her from church, and unfortunately, I became more familiar with her when her mother, our church Secretary, passed away almost 2 years ago.  I have been amazed at the strength of this young lady.   When I asked her how she has managed to get through what she has endured over the last 2 years, she said that she was blessed to have friends like Jennifer to help her deal.  What a blessing indeed.

These two illustrate the cowgirl attitude and style.  From their colorful boots, to their clapping gid-ee-yap game they play while walking down the aisles of a local store, show us just how liberating it is to be themselves.
