Starting Over

Sometimes you have to burn it down and start from scratch.



A huge thank you to Anna Skahill for not only modelling in this photo, but in doing so missing out on going to the lake with the rest of the meetup gang (they forgot about us!)


This image has been in my head for months and I knew that I wanted to shoot it in Indiana and right away I knew that Anna would be the perfect person to help me out. I don't think I've ever met someone as 100% genuinely happy and positive as Anna.
