Portraits of Rhisie and Her Childhood Friends in Santa Barbara

When Rhisie first contacted me (Cheryl) about taking some portraits of her and her friends during their reunion in Santa Barbara, I couldn’t help but get excited. She was telling me about her group of friends who have known each other since they were about 5 years old. Now that they have all gone on to college and have careers of their own they can’t get together as a group as often since they are scattered throughout Southern California. To remedy that, every year they plan a little reunion somewhere. This summer they chose Santa Barbara as their destination. I was thrilled when they asked me to take portraits for them and couldn’t wait for their visit.

When I finally met them I had such a blast taking their pictures. They connected so well with each other and you could tell that there were years of priceless memories shared. It definitely inspired me to reconnect with some of my childhood friends. Check out their images here below.

Thanks girls for such a fun time! Here is your slideshow
