Emily Rose : Senior 2013 // mt. pleasant, tx senior portrait and lifestyle photographer

Me and this girl that you're about to meet go way back...waaaaay back. Like...Kindergarten. :) She was always sweet spirited, soft spoken, thoughtful, and had the cutest laugh and smile.
This year, we're graduating. 
Yeah! We're seniors! Oh goodness! We're so old! Where did the time go?? Seriously!!
When we were that little, back when I spent the night with her and her twin brother at their incredible log cabin house with their exotic pets that enchanted peacocks (yes...peacocks!!), I obviously would've never imagined growing up to be a photographer. But when I did begin to dream about such a profession in my earlier teens years, one thought especially excited me: "When my class and I graduate, I can take their senior pictures! That would be...well, it would pretty much be the coolest." :)
Though sometimes I wondered if it ever would, this fateful year has finally come. I was raring to go to make my dream come true as I made a pretty collage to advertise that I, Allix B., was having a senior portrait special because with me graduating as well, there had to be some form of celebration. ;)
Anywho! All that to say, this sweetheart that I've always been fond of was one of the first ones to respond! :D Because I have been homeschooled since 6th grade, there's some old elementary school buddies that I haven't seen since our last day of 5th grade...and Emily happened to be one of those. 
Spending the afternoon with her, catching up and reminiscing, was a ton of fun. :) Not to mention she is craaaaazy gorgeous...which, fyi, just makes my job that much easier. { That's the only excuse I'm giving for the great abundance of pictures in this post. ;) Please and thank you, thank you very much. }
Funnest fact...she is still sweet spirited, soft spoken, thoughtful, and has the cutest laugh and smile....except now she plays the guitar.
Score :D
Reflection in a shop window across the street. Bam. ;)
Doesn't she look like Haylie Duff here?! Sooooo pretty. :) :)

Another thing that hasn't changed is that awesome log cabin that she grew up in and I remember so well...I was more than happy to use it as our last location! :D

Not positive if they still have peacocks or not....but they do have something pretty special. Um. Yes. It's A BUFFALO! Mmmmhm. Way cool.

They also have deer. :)

The kitty was helping made her smile. ;)

EMILY!!! I had such a blast working with you, my friend. I wish you well in your {OUR} last few months of high school. ;)
