Our October giveaway winner!!
Rebekah, our giveaway winner, selected a business portrait session! What is her business, you might ask? She is an author!! Yes, there is much more to her then meets the eye! She has published 5 books and is working on more!! Below is a little bio about her inspiration for writing. You can find Rebekah’s books at Goodreads - Rebekah_Eddy.
I’ve known Rebekah for a number of years now, but we never got the chance to just talk. This session made it possible though! While walking around her family’s home and taking tons of photos, we talked about writing, family, likes, dislikes, and how cold it was. :) Yes, it was December and she held hand warmers and was freezing the entire time. Yet, her countenance was delightful and her smile was unwavering. Rebekah, you were a pleasure to work with!!
Road photographs are a few of my favorites and Rebekah had this beautiful road right by her home. We had so much fun, so did all the cars that passed by us, I’m sure. I will always have such fond memories of our laughter floating though the air, my little hand signals to tell her to walk or stay, her funny jokes that caused us to laugh, my little sister who was so engrossed in reading Rebekah’s books that she wouldn’t hear us call to her. #favoritemoments
