Unspoken.

Some of my friends at school have been asking me if I took the photos for these posters which are now hopping up around campus (and if that third one is of me) and the answer is Yes I Did. Except for the third one, which my beautiful sister Jo took of me. (Thanks again, J!)

I designed these for our Campus Ministry office, to promote an upcoming, two-part event for the women on campus. The theme is “best friends,” and our ministers will be exploring what a practical, daily, intimate relationship with our King can look like. It will be wonderful, and chapel credit will be bestowed, so all the Lipscomb ladies should plan to be there! It will be March 3rd and 10th at 7 pm – keep an eye out for an email with more info!

Thank you for asking me to do this, Caroline and Keela. I like working with you, and I love being friends.

This very talented friend of mine is an Up & Coming Musician, and the best part of this shoot was the mini concert I got during the whole thing. Please visit her facebook page to share in my good fortune.

Rachael – I’m so thankful that these photos gave us a reason to reconnect. Every moment with you is a blessing, and I can’t decide if your face, your heart, or your voice is more beautiful. Thank you for being my friend  : )

A Sister Effort

Meet Sarah and Emma. Yes, they are sisters; but no, they are not twins; and yes, they are in fact real.

Sarah is commonly known around campus as either The Girl Who Dresses Like She’s From the 40’s or The Red Lipstick Girl, but I get the pleasure of calling her one of my dearest friends. (And if you don’t believe that she always looks this fabulous, you can take a walk down memory lane, to this post I made over a year ago.)

Her sister Emma is the vintage blogger behind The Fiercest Lilliputian. If it’s been awhile since you cyberstalked/developed a healthy girlcrush on someone, well….you’re welcome. Only girlcrushes though, fellas – she’s married!

My sister Jo is not pictured, but she is the last fourth of this Sister collaboration – Jo did Emma and Sarah’s hair and makeup. [APPLAUSE] She’s also the one who suggested this shoot, as a portfolio swap for both of us. That was her Bright Idea – mine was asking Sarah to be our model, and Sarah’s was inviting her sister to join – confirming once and for all that Sisters were one of God’s very best ideas. This is Jo’s facebook page, if you’re interested in a haircut (: Sarah and Emma, thank you, thank you, thank you for doing this for us!

In other news, I’m getting ready to leave town for a couple weeks, but I think I’ve learned a new trick that will keep me on schedule with Eu. Tues! I know you were worried. Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday. (:

Portraits are why God made 50mm lenses.

And the model friends just keeeep coming. (:

Maddie and I did Theatre together in high school. She’s stronger than I, because she’s continued into college, and is trying her hand at modeling this summer.

I think we can agree that she’ll do just fine. (:

I hope these help, Maddie! So good to see you again the other day. You are lovely.

P.S. Is anyone else giddy about My New Lens, or is that just me?

This is Mary Catherine. She’s one of the sweetest, loveliest, most talented young ladies you’ll ever meet, and she’s graduating from my alma mater in a couple weeks!

Congratulations, MC. Enjoy this last little bit! Thanks for letting me take your senior pictures. Love you.

This is my portrait project for my current photography class. The quote at the beginning was my inspiration – I came across it just before portraits were assigned, so when they were, I immediately thought of this.

Just wanted to show some of my friends how bright and beautiful they are. And encourage everyone to look for the staggering beauty that is in every single one of us. I know I didn’t get a lot of variety – I focused on young girls, because they are usually the ones who don’t see how lovely they are. But old, young, male, female, red, yellow, black, and white – we’re all made in His beautiful image.

Elizabeth, Lacy, Sammi, Kimberly, Hope, Hallie, Carly, Sarah, and Liz – you’re nine of the most beautiful people I know. I hope you can see that. Because everyone else does.  : )

thank you, Chelsea,

for making me look much more talented than I actually am.  : )

If anyone needs a model or actress in Nashville, Chelsea Tignor knows what she’s doing. As you can see. Easily one of the most beautiful girls I’ve ever met (I barely retouched these), and she has a heart of gold to match.

Thank you also, Chelsea, for helping me try my silly new tricks, for braving the cold in a tank top and making it look easy, and for warming back up with me over coffee. I had a great Thursday with you, and I’m looking forward to our Monday.

This is my new friend Cameron. Being crazy-smart and having a degree in Molecular Biology isn’t enough for him – he’s got to try out a little acting & music & modeling now. I took some headshots for him, and he started out the shoot with a mustache and finished without one – so I think it was a successful afternoon.

Break a leg, Cameron! Now that the Creeper ‘Stache is gone, you’ll do just fine. (: Also, that natural talent you’re loaded with helps, too.

in the Spirit of New Beginnings

This is Jessica. She studied in Vienna with me this semester. A few weeks before we came home, she went into a hair salon to ask how much a color and cut would cost, and they asked her if she’d like to be in an upcoming fashion show. Turns out, she was the main event. A European stylist gave her this haircut onstage.

I cut twenty-four inches off my hair, ten days before I went to Vienna. (actually, that’s a lie. My sister cut it. Not me.) I think that all young women should cut their hair short at least once in their lives, and this is why: because sometimes you don’t know that you’re An International Supermodel until you do. Right, Jess?

And in my case … it’s just easier. (:

And in other ways, we’re exactly the opposite.”

I think these pictures convey that. Also that I completely win the Who Has the Coolest and Prettiest Sister contest. Sorry, everyone.

She turned twenty-two, two days ago. I gave her little nesting dolls from Poland and made her a cake in the shape of an owl, and we shot a roll of film (and some digital, of course) because we haven’t in a long time. It was a good day.

Also, I do know how to spell “Jordan,” but I didn’t know how to say it when I was little. I called her “Jordna,” and it stuck.

Love you, sister. You hottiepants, you. (;
