Last month, I gave away a portrait shoot via social media. 54 people entered over the weekend and one winner was randomly drawn! That winner was Lyssa and this is our shoot. 

I wanted to give away a photo shoot as a way of saying THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me and followed along via Instagram and Facebook. It has been just over a year since I started working with modeling agencies and developing my own style, and the embrace of my friends (both those I've met and have yet to meet), has been such a blessing.

Lyssa was the most wonderful person to win this contest. She sent over some ideas that she had and I was immediately in love. We walked, talked, and shot around The Design District as well as shooting in the WELD Studios (which are some of my favorite images!). 

Just before the sun set, we went back outside for some glorious, low-light portraits. 

For our last look, Lyssa paired an amazing pale blue dress with dark, moody lipstick. If you couldn't already tell, she has the COOLEST style. 

Keep an eye out for more giveaways and free shoots! This one was so much fun, I will definitely be doing another in the future. Thank you to everyone who entered!! I cannot express how much I love and appreciate you all!
