Niyoka contacted me over a year ago about possibly having her photos taken to celebrate her birthday. She was a bridesmaid in one of my 2012 weddings and wanted to work together again, and I was totally on board for a beauty session with her! We would check back in with each other periodically, but then months would go by and life became a scramble to keep up. We were both so busy, it seemed like our schedules would never align. Well, I am more than happy to announce that we DID IT! All it took was one minor cross-country move and we were able to set up a session during my very first trip back to Pensacola. We met at the beach on a brisk Friday evening and Niyoka rocked it like the gorgeous girl she is. I had such a great time with her during this mini session – we were all smiles the entire time!! Now that I’m back in San Francisco, just looking at these photos of the beach makes me ready for our next trip!!
