I crossed paths with Linda in 1999, when we both taught at the same elementary school in Brownsburg, Indiana. We became friends then, and even though life circumstances, job changes, and time has landed us in two different states, we have remained close friends over the years. Linda is one of my “sister” friends. We aren’t related, but she is just one of the friends in my life that has remained a kindred spirit. We frequently text one another and share prayer requests so that we can pray for one another. Even when a great deal of time passes, we just pick back up where we left off. She is truly an amazing individual whom I respect and adore, and I am blessed to call her “friend”.
Despite the frigid temps that day, it was an honor to capture head shots for Linda, my sweet friend who is also an author based in Central Indiana. The late December temperatures were bitterly cold in Indiana (9 degrees to be exact!), but the glowing, late afternoon sunlight warmed up the rural, snowy scenery surrounding us. I love doing portrait sessions in the snow because it transforms a landscape into a wonderfully reflective wonderland. I love the way the snow blankets the land and rests on the tree branches.
In addition to being a published author, Linda is also an archivist, certified professional genealogist, certified library assistant, and former public school teacher. These unique skills enabled her to author and publish a historical book about the town of Brownsburg, Indiana.
