This is 30: Girlfriends’ Photoshoot with Amanda Matthew’s Photography

November 4, 2017

What do you do to celebrate your best friend’s biggest (and probably most fabulous) birthday? Krista and I have been friends since we were five, and literally, we’ve done it all together. We’ve traveled, marked off many of our bucket list items, Vegas-ed til we were almost dead,  and attended so many amazing events (many of which I don’t remember)- hey- nobody can say we didn’t enjoy our 20’s!) For her birthday I thought it would be fun (and memorable) to do something special so, we decided to do a photo shoot with girlfriends!

For this shoot, we asked Amanda Matthews of Amanda Matthew’s photography if she would be a part of this fun project. We wanted to do something described our friendship over the years- fancy dresses, going out, popping champagne and duh-nuh-nuh junk food of course.

I’ve shot with Amanda several times for She Is Boutique (you can follow them on instagram @sheisboutique or check them out here at www.sheisboutique.org ) All I can say is I typically hate every 99 out of 100 pictures taken of me (like every other girl, am I right?)  Amanda however really has the magic touch! She is SO easy to work with, and I LOVE her editing style! Oh, and did I mention what a bombshell she is? pHOTographer.  I’ll post her contact info at the bottom if this post if you’d like to book her for a session.

Ok, so here it goes! We were kind of trying to go for a “Sex and the City” look. What do you guys think? I was really excited to share these with you, because I’m feelin’ like we killed it. (Oh, and isn’t my gorgeous friend Melissa (in the black) is sporting the hottest baby bump EVER?!?!?) She’s prego goals for sure!

Krista’s boyfriend came to snap a few quick photos with her too, and we all toasted together! (Don’t worry Mel just brought a sparkling grape juice! Lol!)

If you’re looking for a great spot downtown Indy for photos, I highly suggest the Indiana War Memorial.

    Something about this one just reaches to my core. I could not love this any more than I do. Seriously!!! I have known Krista since elementary school too and then she was the only Senior in high school that my mom would let me hang out with as a Freshman!! Although I never got to know you, Kelli, as close as I have Krista, I have always admired you two’s friendship!! You are both so generous, thoughtful, and fun!!! You will both be so successful at whatever you put your mind too. Kelli, I always love reading your blogs and your personality just shines through them! It makes me want to hang out with you!!!

    I read this to my Mom, Jeanette, and showed her all the pictures! I wish you could’ve seen her face!! She said “WOW THESE ARE SOOOO GOOD!!! HOW COOL!” Then she went on to say how she remembered you girls at Brandywine Elementary!! She said Krista was always more talkative but Kelli was shy and quiet. She said she remembered that Kelli was always reading books and was very smart because of it! 💜 How sweet!!

    Anyways, I’ll support both of you guys no matter where life takes you and I love watching your stories unfold!!

    XOXO 😘

      Carla,

      This is just the sweetest! First of all, thank you so much for reading! I am always surprised when people tell me they actually read the blog, lol! I remember your mom so well, she was just the nicest lady! That’s funny that she remembered me as quiet, because no one has ever told me that! HAHA! (although I did always have my nose in a book I’m sure!) I will be sure to have Krista read this, too! I am so thankful to have you as a follower and hope you’ll continue to follow along! 🙂 I’m always open to suggestions!

      I hope you and your hubs are doing great too!

      xoxo,

      Kelli

        Thank you so much Kelli!! 💜 My suggestion is that y’all plan a trip to Nashville so I can show you guys around my favorite city!!!

        Of course, I’ll definitely continue reading!! 😘 One of my best friends just launched her blog, ChooseJoyGiveGrace.com! She talks a lot about overall wellness and she’s on my Young Living Essential Oils team so she incorporates oils into her blog too! It’s so cool to see what you bloggers put on paper (or screen!)! I love it.

        Always a supporter,

        Carla
