Mentor Session with Kayla Barker by Nicole Clarey
Summer romances begin for all kinds of reasons, but when all is said and done, they have one thing in common. They’re shooting stars, spectacular moments of light from the heavens, a fleeting glimpse of eternity, and in a flash they’re gone.
— Nicholas Sparks

The summer season is likened to falling in love because of the way it fills the heart with warmth and so many stories of romance are told after. Summer is the season to inspire love. It is the season that brings with it bold and vibrant colors to set our hearts on fire. 

Nicole Clarey recently had the pleasure of working with Kayla Barker for a one on one mentorship and what they created was pure summer magic!

Capturing those real moment of love. That is what it’s all about. The kind of moments that leave you breathless, that give you goosebumps, that make you feel. Whether it’s been 20 days or 20 years, those feelings come flooding back. Every single time.
