I've known Kate for over 5 years now, since she was a little baby freshman in high school. I got to help coach her cheer, mentor her in photography, be her boss, be her friend, and overall get to watch her develop into a wonderful young lady. Through all of the years knowing her, and the 40+ hour road trips and work vacations we've been on together, I feel like I've gotten to know her heart and know her personality pretty darn well. This is why, meeting Yadder, just completely made me smile. They just make sense. Yadder is the male version of Kate. They are goofy, fun, love the Lord, love their friends, appreciate art, have stellar style, and have more swag than Jay-Z and Beyonce. They bring out the best in each other, are their complete selves around each other, and truly exude so much joy together.
I loved getting to capture these two! And what better day to share all of my favorites from their shoot than this girls' 20th birthday?! I can't believe you're 20 Katelyn... Welcome to the twenties, I am so excited to continue to watch you grow and see all of the joy and adventure that life brings you this year and years to come. Happy birthday, love you!
