EMILY HANEY | MOTEL 6 DENTON, TX | PORTRAITS

Damn girl. I met Emily through Instagram and boy am I glad she reached out. You can expect to see her up here more than you probably care to. She's beautiful and (as you can tell) an uber talented makeup artist. 

Real talk though. Every. single. shoot I've ever done holds fast to one thing; about an hour before I get ready to cancel. Emily and I talked about this, and she actually felt the same way. There is something about making yourself get off the couch, charge your batteries, double check your camera bag, drive to meet a stranger, and then really get down to business. It's hard. And I don't know why. But as soon as I start shooting I thank the gods above that I showed up. There's something really cool about just doing it. Reminding yourself that this shoot. this very one. could change everything. And it did. I'm so encouraged and could literally gaze into her eyes forever. Well, go ahead then.
