Michaela. Porcelain Doll. Broken.

I could spend a thousand years trying to explain the awesomeness that is Michaela and it still might not be enough time.  She’s smart, she’s funny, she’s GORGEOUS, she’s about to do a semester of college in IRELAND!!!!, she has quick wit, she’s courageous, she’s faithful… the list could go on for eons.  The thing that stands out the most to me, though, is the beauty that is INSIDE her.  Too many times we focus on what’s on the outside and look past what’s on the inside.  Michaela is the rare soul that has the beauty in both places.  When I grow up, I want to be just like her.  Color me incredibly jealous of not only her but of those who get to share her in their lives.

When Michaela comes home from college, she always has groovy ideas for funky, edgy, creepy and sometimes dark concept shoots. I always like the idea that what she comes up with hasn’t been done before and we are the first!   This was one of her ideas and I have to say, every time she texts me with a new idea, I get excited and can’t wait to do it.  As much complaining as we did about how cold it was, it was even colder for her.  She was barefoot and laying on the ground.  Here’s just a few of what we shot today, the rest are for Michaela to share!   <3<3<3
