What better way to say goodbye to the old year and begin the new one than with a post about those constant friends…

I am so excited I had the chance to photograph Erika this week. She’s one of my oldest friends – first day of Freshman year in high school (yes, we go way back)! Since she currently lives in Tallahassee, completing her Master’s Degree at Florida State, I had to take the chance she was in town for the holidays to not only hang out but snap some pictures!

We wanted a very casual, no-big-deal kind of shoot. She threw on some jeans and a blue top (it ended up being glorious because of the color) and a pair of boots she had bought just the day before – it was perfect! The dress was nice one to photograph her in as well – the whole shoot turned girly casual with a hint of country, courtesy of the boots.

Erika has such an interesting and flawless complexion and she was so awesome to shoot. This was made even better by all of the fun we had actually shooting these photos. Another great time had by great friends…and we got some amazing shots in the process.

Enjoy the photos below and have a safe & very happy New Year! I hope 2012 brings you all of the blessings, love, and good fortune you deserve!
