Christine Khoury

April 29, 2017 Glendora, CA


I have had the privilege of calling Christine my coworker, roommate, and best friend. Christine and I met our very first day of work at the Center for Student Action, and from then on started a friendship that continued throughout our time at APU and I am certain will continue forever. She has given me the clearest picture of what it means to not only love others, but make certain they know how loved they are – not only through her words, but her gift for encouragement note-writing  and cooking too of course! I also got the chance to photograph her incredible artwork, which you can see down below.  I am so pumped to be living with her again soon and have gorgeous creations like these all over the place!


PS. A ladybug kept landing on Christine & her art! Coincidence?


... I think not!

I've been lucky enough to know the beautiful miss Katie ever since we were on the same hall together freshman year. It's safe to say that one of the things we relate on the most is our love for sunshine, which we've successfully enjoyed together throughout our years at APU from pool days at The Sandcastle to beach days to hikes and everything in between! This shoot was so fun because we got to run around our neighborhood! Thanks for being the very best model (seriously) and even better roommate. Love you, Katie!

Gabby Bowman is joy, laughter, and sunshine. This shoot was such a blast because whenever I am with Gabby I feel like I am always hysterically laughing, and this photoshoot was no exception. Not only is Gabby kind and full of life, but she is smart and hardworking... and I am beyond excited for her as she starts her next adventure when she moves across the country in the fall (to attend Princeton)! I am proud of you & thankful for you, Miss Gabrielle. :)
