Best Friends Photoshoot: Katie & Payal

If you've never had a photo shoot with your best friend, you're missing out! A few weeks ago, Katie reached out to me to schedule a BFF session with her best friend Payal to surprise her for her birthday. Katie & Payal have been best friends since 2008 and haven't taken any photos together in six YEARS. We decided to visit downtown Covington for their session and I love that we were able to have the perfect mix of a (very Cincinnati!) cloudy sunset. I think that female friendships are SO important and absolutely worth celebrating. I'm so happy that Katie and Payal have one another and I love that they now have these photos to remember how special their bond is. I also love that they'll have these photos to look back on over the years as their friendship continues to grow. This session was SO much fun and I'm so thankful that they chose me to capture these memories for them!!
