Hometown Gem

This spring I sat down and got to work on a shoot I have been wanting to do for a few years now. In the heart of downtown Sikeston, MO, there lies a beautiful establishment called Kirby's, famous for it's "Kirby burger" and famous to me: Kirby's cheese sticks. :) This place is a Sikeston staple and I always recommend it to people that are new to town. I even went there on my wedding day and took some photos with Caleb right after we got hitched! Kirby's holds a special place in my heart and I hope it stays.

I forced one of my best friends from high school to model for me as well as a model friend I have recently made to join us! I styled them in some classic whites, reds, and denim and made sure we had our Sikeston red lipstick on (wouldn't you like to be a pepper too?!). We got permission from the waitress and made sure to order some cheese sticks for photoshoot fuel! Here is how it went down!

yeah this was easter weekend lol

Hope you love these as much as I do! A HUGE thanks to my models for putting up with all my ideas! And forever thankful for hometown gems <3
