sometimes someone has such an awesome name, you totally know that they're super cool before you even meet them.

case in point: lanne campos.

[l-ah-knee]

lanne is one of those people I feel like I've known for a really long time. we have several mutual friends, and have been friends on Facebook for awhile, and she's totally super cool with style + vibes fo dayzzz, so I've periodically stalked her for awhile now. when we met up for our sesh, and she was like, "hey, nice to finally meet you!" I was all, "ohh, yeah hehe, we haven't met before. I just feel like we have because I'm a creeper and I totally stalk you."

absolutely my very favorite thing about being a millennial. 

girlfran got her paint on, and worked her magic right before my eyes, and I got to shoot the whole dang thing. lanne's heart and love come out in her work and the way she minsters to people through it, and if that's not what this whole art thing is all about, you guys, I don't know what is.

scroll + enjoy. xoxo

Zayne is a local artist here in Abilene (you can check out her work HERE) and showed up to our sesh and was just a total natural model babe. So--as it turns out, this girl not only creates art, she just sort of is naturally living art. 

Which, YOU GUYS. The very coolest thing I've been learning more and more through photographing people and seeking to capture their stories is exactly that: people are art. Their stories are beautiful. YOU are beautiful. 

I can see that. Sticking my face behind a lens has made the world look so so different to me...people I would have had a passing thought like, "oh hey, she's pretty" or "he's not hard to look at" LITERALLY have me catching my breath. Little spots I used to drive past every day have me veering over to the side of the road because I just HAVE to capture this perfecttttt scene. ABILENE FREAKING TEXAS isn't a dusty, tree-less little town...it's a place to explore and be infatuated with now. 

And I don't think anything has changed. I think I'm taking more time to look...reallyyyyy look. I call it listening with my eyes. And you guys, I'm so obsessed with all that I'm hearing.
