You guys are probably familiar with this gorgeous girl! I’ve photographed her quite a few times and she has been on the blog before! Annaliese is such a sweet soul and I always love my time with her. Not only is she an incredibly talented radio host but she also runs a super successful fashion blog! Annaliese and I first met a LOOONG time ago through an organization called Delight for young Christian creatives. I have talked about this before but I will never forget when I traveled down to Charlotte, North Carolina where she used to be in school to meet her and another girl in the group. I stayed with my aunt who lives down there and we hung out for a couple days. We explored Charlotte, went on a really fun hike, and of course, took photos!
I was really new to photography at this point so getting to photograph Annaliese, who was getting into fashion blogging at the time, was so much fun for me. I think that was my first experience doing something like that and I realized I absolutely LOVED it! Not only did I get to travel (OMG, Charlotte seemed like such a big deal when I was that young and went all on my own) but I got to do a shoot in a big city! Haha! It’s so funny looking back but also so encouraging because that was a dream come true for me. Back then, I had no idea all the places photography would take me!
But anyway, ever since Annaliese moved to Charlottesville a couple years ago, I’ve gotten to work with her more and it always brings my heart so much joy! Her bubbly personality and zest for life makes her fun to photograph! Here are a few images from our recent shoot together in Stonefield!
