{spry magazine}

i was contacted by spry magazine a few months ago to see if i would be interested in doing a photoshoot for the november cover. i honestly thought it was a joke at first. haha. i'm just a small town photographer doing what i love and was so excited to be given this chance. i was told about sonja, the women i would be photographing, and i was thrilled to jump at this opportunity.
the photo session was such a fun time! we even had 2 adorable puppies and sonja's dog join us!
i was able to see the layout a few weeks ago,
but when i saw it in the paper today i was so excited!
spry magazine is distributed in the newspapers nationwide.
i was told they print 9.2 million copies...eek!!!
here is a copy of the magazine and i'm so happy to share it.
{there is a spelling error on the photo credit-- it has shannon holman, but i promise, it's me :) }





so, a HUGE thank you to spry for giving me this opportunity. i loved every second of it.
thank you also to sonja--an amazing woman, jesi at salon jazlin who did the hair and to the girls at beauty bar who did the makeup.

Congratulations on this exciting opportunity! You're far too humble though--it's no surprise to ANY of us that you were chosen to shoot for them! The pix are terrific!! And what a neat story too.
