This gorgeous young woman was the flower girl in my wedding almost 9 (ack!) years ago. And in those years, I have watched her grow from a funny, sweet, smart little girl who was never without some sort of athletic gear to an amazing, beautiful, confident woman. I am so incredibly proud of her, and I know she'll do amazing things when she heads off to the University of Missouri- Columbia.
As for the photography sessions themselves, I was incredibly nervous! I wanted everything to be perfect. We shot these over two consecutive weekends- the first being in Jefferson City and the second here in St. Louis. Both times we fought rain/cold/wind, but Abby was an absolute trooper. We were able to create some stunning images and had a fantastic time doing it as well. :)
