Maria = LuLu Letty {Lifestyle Photographer}

Meet Maria... a classmate since 6th grade... high school tennis buddy... & reconnected via Facebook... Maria is a wife... etsy shop owner... artist... vintage buyer... with a taste for vintage clothing... she is a trend setter with a style all her own... oh, and lastly -- she's a professional blogger =) well, I call her professional because you simply do not have over 1,300 1,420 blog followers without leaving readers a sense of professionalism! And she, is a very good example of a fantastic blogger (posting every day & sometimes twice a day)!

Maria not only helped me get started with my blog, but this past year she has helped me with any blogging issues I had... even to a point where I gave her my password to fix something I couldn't figure out... Maria, is so helpful... not only to me, but to the 1,420 people that follow her... because aside from inspiring loyal followers with her vintage style -- she has DIY fashion & non-fashion projects & advice; from making hair bows, how to properly care for wavy hair, makeup advice, to making homemade ice cream... check out her delightful blog HERE... {you'll be hooked}

Again, while in Michigan, I squeezed in a photo shoot with Maria & and her husband Cole... and originally , I was going to post their photos first -- but I thought it appropriate to do a Maria tribute first since she was the reason for this shoot... a photo shoot to thank her for all the help she's given me... and well --- for being so inspirational... enjoy!

this picture is so heavenly! perfect lighting... perfect model... {sigh}

OH, Jamilah!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm speechless. Your words made me get all misty-eyed! I truly appreciate everything you wrote!!

Now to the photos, oh WOW! I may (or may not) be a professional blogger, but you are definitely a Professional Photographer!! I love that you had me try new poses and even work my bad side! ;)

Seriously though, Thank You So Much! I will cherish these photos forever!
