I definitely had a certain look and a couple crazy ideas I wanted to put into play when my mom said she wanted to get some photos done before I left on my mission. Granted, none of them were very traditional, but I wanted people to look at these and feel the excitement I feel. Being a missionary is a celebration! Like imma a take all this happiness I've found and imma share it with you! There is such a happiness in knowing the truth, in living the gospel of Jesus Christ, in serving others- it's astounding! The beautiful Ellen O'Donnell (thank you again x 100,000,000) helped me capture these moments and then I was able to get jazzy with all the post processing.
