Say hello to the genuinely sweet Julia! Julia is so easy to chat with and hanging out with her for her session was so much fun! Not only is she drop dead gorgeous she’s so down to earth and humble. I absolutely loved her smile and laugh. It is hands down perfection. PS she brought the cutest and most loveable guest to her session (see below) I loved every minute of meeting her sweet and gentle natured Ringo. Julia is headed off to Oklahoma State this week where I know she’ll charm the campus with her smile and down to earth vibe. I had such a blast working with you Julia. Thanks so much for choosing me to document such a special time in your life. xoxo ~ Angela
Say hello to the kind hearted and stunning Samantha! Sam is the kind of girl you meet and you instantly want to hug!!! This girl is truly a ray of sunshine and exudes God’s love. I am truly so grateful I got to meet her this past year and getting to know her as she was one of our Class of 2017 Models last school year was truly a treat. She is so selfless giving of herself and her time. I could go on and on about her and her accolades while she was a senior at Collevyille Heritage but now she’s on to a new chapter and headed off to TCU this fall where she will be studying Nursing. Imagine that…the girl who loves helping & caring for others. I know she will do amazing things in this lifetime as she is following what she is called to do in her heart. Sam you are truly so special and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for you!!! So glad to know I’ll occasionally get to see you at church Sunday mornings and I’ll still get those amazing hugs from you!!! You’re the absolute best sweet girl xoxo ~ Angela
When I first chatted with Brittany of Truth Ink Apparel about her ideas for introducing a new teen line to her amazing brand I knew I had the perfect team to help model and share this wonderful idea she had envisioned! Our Class of 2018 model team is such a wonderful group made of 8 amazing young ladies who are kind hearted and positive and I knew they’d be great ambassadors for this new line. I love the idea of positive wear for young girls and the idea of sharing valuable messages at such a young age with their peers of worth, love and acceptance. In a world that is currently so enthralled in social media and finding validation through likes and comments why not bring it back down to face to face kindness and sharing love and acceptance through real words and truth with our friends. If we build each other up and reinforce the bond that we all share that God loves us for who we are including our differences and that those facts are all we need to really put our stock in while lifting each other up what a beautiful thing that would be. I am truly so proud of my girls who were able to participate in this fun shoot and seeing these images fill up their feeds is truly touching. To know they are sharing this love and kindness with their friends openly without reservation is a wonderful. I can’t wait to see teens their age wearing these adorable tshirts to school soon or just while hanging out with friends and spreading this joy. One of my favorite quotes that I immediately think of is “share kind words with others they are free” so easy and anyone can do it and just think you could change one persons day so why not!!! Working with Truth Ink and my team was such an honor truly. This will definitely be one of my favorite sessions!

Meet Grace one of my Class of 2017 Models. Where do I begin with this girl….well lets just say I adore her. She reminds me a lot of myself at her age only she’s on a whole nother level. Grace is extremely hardworking and tenacious. She knows what she wants and she’s firm in doing what it takes to achieve any goal she sets for herself. She is confident in who she is and she’s loving and thoughtful. Many qualities I admire in someone especially someone who is barely 18! I know in my heart this girl is destined for great things. Grace has been playing tennis since she can remember and her senior year she was the team captain of her tennis team and starting player. She’s spent lots of time on the court and her Mom is always by her side cheering her on. Not only is she athletic she’s also artistic, Grace plays multiple instruments but her junior and senior year she was a drum major and section leader in her school band. She was also a regional and area player. At school she was a member of NHS and a link leader all while holding down a pt job and being an ABP model! I don’t know how she does it all but she does and all with a gorgeous smile on her face and the best cheerful attitude! Grace will be headed to Texas Tech in the fall majoring in Pre Vet.
I am so excited for you Grace. It has truly been such an honor getting to know you this past year and watching you grow and blossom during your senior year. It is going to be so much fun to watch your journey as you are off to school. I know God has great things in store for you and you are going to do so much with your life!!! Thank you for always bringing your fun and sweetest disposition to every meetup we ever had. Your amazing bright smile and soft smile (you know you kill that) can’t be beat!
Lots of love and hugs ~ Angela
I had so much fun shooting last month with my new Class of 2018 Models. These girls are already blowing me away with their fun loving personalities that I just know it’s going to be a great year!!! I am truly so excited to work with them each this year and I think they are going to be a great group together. They each are so special and unique in their own way and I LOVE that! Every year God has blessed me with such a great group of girls to work with I always think how do you top the last group. Then I get the special opportunity to work with more amazing young ladies. I say it often but really mean it I am just blown away by these girls every year and their gracious and giving hearts. They are constantly impressing me with their tenacity, hard work, love for their community & peers and humble attitudes.
