I feel like I can’t write this post without tearing up a little.  I have only known Brooke for a little over a year, but in that short amount of time I have formed a really special relationship with her.  She is in our youth group at church, so of course we have made some great memories together!  Lock-in, summer camp, prayer team, and seeing each other at least once a week every week for the past year have allowed us to really get to know each other.  However, what I’ve seen in Brooke is not just a girl who shows up at church. She gives so much more. Brooke has always been genuine and honest whenever I’ve spoken with her.  She is real with me and those around her, and I think that’s what everyone loves about her.  She is a hard worker, a sister, a daughter, and a lover of Jesus.  And what I love most about her is that she worships hard and prays hard.  This girl is beautiful inside and out, and I am so proud of her.

Did I mention her crazy awesome style?  We started out with this Urban look – and she rocked it.

I think this hat is my favorite!  It makes me so excited that summer is right around the corner – so fun and free.

For the last series of photos, Brooke talked to me about what she really wanted to capture – her heart for dance.  She loves dancing, and she is so graceful.

This last image is my favorite, because anyone who knows Brooke know that this picture perfectly captures who she is.  Beautiful, joyful, fun, and spirited.  Brooke, I love you.  Thank you so much for allowing me to capture this time in your life.  I’m so thankful you are my friend and I pray you never lose your passion for life and Jesus!  I tried, but I didn’t make it to the end of this post without tears.  You are a beautiful woman, and I’m so proud of you!
