Amanda: senior 2012 || dallas, tx portrait & wedding photographer

Thursday, March 29, 2012


She's one of the funnest people I have ever met.  Yes, "funnest." Her older sister Whitney has been one of my best friends for about 4 years now, and about one year after meeting Whit I met her younger sister Amanda who I'd already heard so much (craziness) about.  Amanda became good friends with my sister Rachel and then somewhere along the way all four of us became this blob of "best friend-ness."  Amanda and I get asked all the time if we're sisters because of our "matching hair" which is amusing because she's about a foot taller than me.  She likes to tell me that my hair looks like hers, to which I always reply that actually hers looks like mine, because mine came first :)

Everything with Amanda is an adventure.  Literally everyyythiiing.  She will do pretty much anything as long as it's fun and will make people laugh, and can turn routine life into hilarious laugh-so-hard-your-belly-hurts kinds of memories.

We actually we're supposed to take her senior pictures last fall and the night before I was scheduled to head out to E. Texas for the shoot she was admitted to the hospital with severe stomach pain.  That set off a series of hospital stays and endless doctor visits over the next few months.  She had to give up basketball (which she looooves) her senior year because of her health and yet through it all hasn't lost her happy-go-lucky-ness and complete trust that God knows what He's doing and that He only gives good gifts.  She's a dear one.

p.s. she gets told all the time (because of her height and hair) that she looks like Taylor Swift, so I just had to include one of the pictures where she's doing her T-swift hair toss... ;)
















Much Love.
