I have a good friend who is a fantastic up and coming photographer!  Courtney McCatty of Summerfrost Photography.  I shot with Courtney back in 2009, then again in 2010 when she was the official photographer for NM3 Magazines model of the year contest, (which I won!)  Courtney and I have kept in touch with each other over the years and still chat all the time.  Courtney got a hold of me a week or so ago and told me about a project she was working on; Project 365.  The idea is very cool and I was very excited to be asked to be a part of it!

The concept is simple, for 1 year, 365 days, Courtney is going to shoot with women from all over Michigan.  Each day she is posting 1 photo from each shoot until she has a collection of 365 photos all of the women of Michigan!

We decided since my reign as Miss Michigan Galaxy is about done, I would take this chance to shoot in my sash one more time, as well as wear one of my awesomely glitzy dresses that I pretty much can't wear anywhere else. ;)

Courtney's work is always amazing, you can see more from her on her Facebook Page.  Here are the images she got of me for the project, taken right here in down town Grand Rapids!
