Lovely Ladies Vol. 2

Its certainly about time I got around to posting another lovely ladies post! I actually cant believe that it has been two months since I posted the first volume {does anyone else feel like this year is slipping away?!} For this edition of lovely ladies, I would like to introduce to you some of the woman that I love, that I dont get to see very often, due to big distances between us, but who I love ever so much. These girls, are some of the most wonderful friends, and I miss them ever so dearly.... But without further ado, let me introduce you to some VERY lovely ladies...

This beauty is Alannah... You may remember her from a little while ago when I posted about her and Michaels engagement and was lucky enough to be able to photograph an engagement photography session with her. Lana, is one of my best friends. Without a doubt. She is the most genuine, kind and loving girl I have ever met. We bonded over the show Rockstar INXS and quickly realised that we had a bond that was pretty rare. Lana has lived away from New Zealand for long periods of time in the past, but its always the same, the minute she comes home, we hang out and its like nothing has changed. I think our souls just get each other. I miss her a little bit more every day, but am so so so thankful that this amazing, inspiring and loving woman is in my life.

Introducing my Alabama Sweetheart Paige. Oh boy, she is just so wonderful. Truely. I met her years ago... on Myspace! {hehe!!} and we became virtual friends emailing most days, helping each other through tough times, and all that other lovely stuff. We met face to face for the first time just over 7 months ago, when I flew from NZ to the US for a trip. I spent a week with Paige and her family, and it instantly felt like home. This girl is more than a friend, she is family. I adore her with my whole heart, and she never fails to make me smile.

Check this babe out! Carol is also an Alabama Sweetheart. One I hold VERY dear to my heart. This girl blows my mind, she is so smart, talented and super super kind, seriously, PACKAGE DEAL! I am so so so lucky to call her a close friend. I love our skype chats, and the little love notes she leaves me on facebook. Without fail, every time I talk to this beauty, I am left feeling happy and loved. I miss her alot.

Oh hey miss Shayla! Some of you might know this beauty from her blog. I met this darling when she came and lived in New Zealand for a year, a few years back now. We only met once, and it was only in passing. But when I made my trip through the states, I spent some time with her and her boyfriend in OKC... my goodness. It was such a great few days. She is so warm and delightful. Honestly, when you are around Shayla, you just cant be sad. She is one of the sweetest girls that I know and I am so lucky to call her a friend!! Lovveeeee!

  3. Thnaks for your comment on my blog Tillie. I'm hoping to find my groove sometime soon! Oh, and do you by any chance have the same problem uploading photos as I do? Is it very awkward and annoying and the pictures keep jumping around? I keep thinking it's just me!
