Lucky for me, I have some beautiful friends, Caitie being one of them.

So when I felt the need to get some creativity out, I was lucky to have a great muse, such as herself, to work with. I found an amazing location and ran with it.

    Beautiful colors and placement of her in the photo! The tree trunks clutter her head a bit, but I’m not sure If you could have covered them up any better.
