Lexie | Class of 2018

I feel like a warm, red Autumn.~
So here’s the story. During a session with another senior, the unthinkable happened. I was trying to cross a precarious path and fell into the water, camera on hand. My Canon and favorite 85 mm lens were ruined; it was a very expensive lesson. But bad things happen and the best thing to do is to get up, think positively and move forward. I rented equipment and wrapped up my remaining fall sessions the following weekend. And you know what? The autumn colors just peaked and gave us the best backdrop, as if to say, we got your back!

Audrey | Class of 2018

A sign of love much like an autograph, 
which is what you call a kiss. 

Audrey and Sugar, the sweetest pair.

Audrey was a model rep for us last year and she’s grown into an even lovelier, young lady. When we met, they had all their favorite places picked out — from the old, oak tree, a neighbor’s lake, a rustic barn (with the most golden light), and her farm. It was authentic, natural beauty, just like Audrey.

High School: Rock Bridge High School

Three words that describe me are caring, dedicated, hard working.

Something a lot of people don’t know about me: I’ve lived in Columbia my whole life.

Best high school memory: Competing on the Missouri FFA state, winning livestock judging team, and making it to nationals.

Favorite food: Mexican food or ice cream

Describe your perfect day: My perfect day would be spending it at a rodeo or barrel race competition.

Plans after graduation: Not sure where yet, but I want to attend college and study Ag Business.

A special thank you to Matt, my favorite assistant, who manages to produce the best lighting and BTS  :) For behind the scenes and sneaks, follow me on Instagram (stories) @2rtist.
