Welcome, dear readers, to my girl gang. You've read mention of both of these babes on the blog before, and seen Briley's killer photography, so it was about time I introduced you! The leggy brunette to the left is Briley, and the sassy blonde in the middle is Shelby. These gals are my sun and moon and stars, and I have no idea what I'd do without them. They make me stronger, and they make me feel like it's okay to not be strong all the time. They inspire me endlessly. Their victories make mine seem more attainable. They're driven, creative, loving, thoughtful, and fierce. And it doesn't hurt that they're a couple of cuties!

This photo shoot actually came about for a couple of reasons. First, since Briley is always behind the camera, she's never in photos with us. That had to change! Second, both of these ladies have birthdays in December, so we wanted to do a little something special to celebrate.

We teamed up with the lovely and talented Katie Jameson, whose photography you've seen over on Lauren's blog Make It A Double. She's a master at finding the light, making us giggle, and telling Shelby where to put her hands during photos. Thanks, Katie for coming out with us and making this unforgettable photo shoot happen!

Stay tuned, because I'll be back tomorrow with part two of the photo sesh!
