If they say that you can measure a man (or woman!) by the company you keep, then Danielle is certainly a special young lady. Her sweet friends contacted me to surprise her with a Bridal Portrait session before her wedding; they all contributed to pay the session fee, and they surprised her with a gift certificate one day after work. How sweet is that?? I think this gesture–designed to make Danielle feel special even before her wedding day–not only speaks volumes about these kind and generous friends, but also about Danielle, that they would want to do this for her. She and I had talked and texted before her session, and, both being goofballs, texted at the same time the day before the session: “I’ll be the one in the white dress!” and “I’ll be the one with the camera!” Danielle is the kind of person who makes you want to be better just from being around her. She radiates God’s love, and she is warm, kind, and caring right from the start. She has the most bubbly laugh ever, and I left her portrait session knowing that I had made a new friend.
