I can't believe my baby cousin Stacie just graduated from High School!

We have always been close... we gave each other makeovers when she was little, played endless games of frisbee in the middle of the night in front of her house, sought adventure on our road trips and talked of our love for God and desire to know Him deeper.

She is my cousin and my friend and I hope these photos do justice to not only her hotness, but also her beautiful spirit.

    Nicole, these are so beautiful. You really captured Stacie's personality in these pics. I know she doesn't like being in front of the camera, but you made her feel comfortable, and you shot amazing pictures. Thank you!!!

    i love the one with the yellow background and the flowers.... so pretty, and the guitar picture with the light shining from behind. those are my two faves, but they are all so natural and beautiful.
