Oh Kelsi Long, you have got it goin' on.
Let's be real here. Kelsi Long has been my girl crush for as long as I've known her. She's got style, beauty, and a kick-ass personality. Kelsi is a gem.
I had the privilege of going to the same small town high school as Kelsi as well as photographing her in the past. She absolutely made my day/week/month/year by asking me to photograph her again as she prepares to enter her senior year of college at App State University. With a soul this full of love and grace, I knew we were going to have some fun.
We ventured up to Craggy Gardens last week and got lost approximately five times. Probably more if we're being honest. We hiked the wrong trail twice, ended up getting all turned around without phone service, and concluded our evening by munching on cookout while listening to Angus & Julia Stone. I absolutely loved hearing about the adventures this incredible young woman is partaking in, and learning about her plans. She recently got engaged (to a super lucky man- let's be real!) and you can tell that she's beaming with love.
I have such a deep appreciation for souls like Kelsi's that absolutely emanate positivity. It is a sincere blessing to photograph individuals like this, and I am so thrilled to share a look into our evening together.
Kelsi, thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to spend time with you and photograph you again. You're a true beauty inside and out, and I cannot wait to see what doors are set to open for you as time goes on.
- your number one fan.
