Smile with your eyes

Smile with your eyes

I’m the girl that hides in the back of group photos.

The girl that gets the person with the longest arms to take the selfie from wayyy up high…. except today…. today I’m stepping way out of my comfort zone. Today is the day I get all dolled up and take pics for my album cover…. and I’ve got nowhere to hide. It helps that I had a glam squad! Alison and Alison are making this experience much more comfortable. Kayla white has always been my photographer, the fact that we are close friends helps ease my mind too. I know she understands my insecurities and will help me through this.

Don-E Coady is directing the shoot, and again our long time friendship helps with this process. This man has pushed me to be the best version of myself since we first met 8 years ago. This is the first thing people are going to see when they pick up my album…. and today I’m feeling particularly more fluffy than normal. I arrive at the shoot nice and early. Nerves are on bust. Then the hair and make up team arrive… and start in on making me photo shoot ready. I’ve never felt more alive!
