Hannah Nicole: portraits // grapevine, tx portrait and lifestyle photographer

Don't waste time looking for your style
the truth is you already have it.
you may just need to create more
in order to see it.
// promise tangeman-wurzell //                                                                                                                                                    
Yes, yes, the Hannah Nicole!!
She was participating in the Jessica Shae Summer Adventure Internship and I, as a past intern, attended the "Internship Renuion" that Jessica held on Wednesday. 
So, after about two years of waiting, we finally got to meet face to face!
{Man, I'm getting good at meeting online Hannah friends in person. ;)}

Its was funny how the big huge strange gap-of-cyber-friendshipness was swallowed up in seconds and I immediately felt like we had known each other our whole lives. :)
Ever since I found Aspire, I knew that this girl had a special soul. Beautiful, deep, rich, imaginative, and full of love....love for Christ, for her family, for people, for the eclectic, for art, for beauty, and for real living. Her style has continued to grow and deepen so rapidly she literally blows my mind every time she writes or creates something. 
Did I mention she's only 16. Yeah. I know. Its crazy ridiculous. ;)
She's pretty much the best ever. Except she can't say bag right. But I'll try to forgive her...and her camera baeg. I simply must have you back here in Texas for a longer amount of time one day, girl...maybe I can get some of our awesome accent that you love to rub off on you! ;)
P.S. Fun Fact! Rachel Leigh and I participated in a film contest recently and Hannah actually watched it without sound just so our voices would be a surprise!! Gah! How adorable is that?!

To answer all of y'all's question...yep. I had my doubts but its true.
Her eyes really are that stupendous in person. 
They're aaaamaaaaazing. :)

Oh, hey, while I'm teaching you Texas lingo, you can teach me to draw and paint and work Photoshop, k k? Cause I really need to learn and you're pretty much a beast at all of the above. :D

Ok, so I dig this shot. Absolutly Dig. It. Mostly cause its SO Hannah...it reminds me a lot of her work. :)
Which is downright phenomenal. {I'm running out of adjectives that truly describe her value you guys!!!} But anyways, if you've been living under a rock in the heart of Bolivia or something and haven't seen her work. GO. NOW. Make sure you're sitting down. Or you'll fall over. Promise.

She just recently got a 5D Mark II and 50mm 1.4 {just like me :)} and she's now officially a wedding photog. The artistic merit of this girl...beyond words.

I reeeeally loved her dress. A lot. Its a good thing I didn't stay in the hotel, cause it totally wouldn't have made it back to Minnesota. ;)

So much gorgeousness...

You have the sweetest smile, Hannah. :) 


Still contemplating how to steal it.....

AHHH!!! Its impossible to ever tell you how wonderful it was to finally meet you/hug you so tight we could've gotten dizzy from oxygen deprivation. You're soooo very precious and we must must must see each other soon, deal?! :)

Cause yeah, you're a keeper, for sure. ;)
