When I’m not shooting, I’m planning. I’m dreaming, and pinning (yes, Pinterest addict) and I’m viewing. Magazines, tv shows, advertisements, movies. I go for walks, I look at light, and I dream. I dream of when that day comes that the subjects, the weather, the location, the lighting, and the gear, all come together in this perfect package and I just shoot. And I shoot what I love. And I shoot for the client, but I shoot for me. This is one of those shoots.
Meet Abby and Rockstar. Abby is one of my best friends, and way back when I first started shooting, was one of my very first clients. I didn’t know her then, I didn’t know that 4 years later I’d be shooting my 4th photoshoot with her. I didn’t know that we would spend a week planning her outfits, because she didn’t know what to wear even though she’s the most fashionable girl I know. I didn’t know I would show up, and the sun would hit the leaves just right, and that the wind would pick up her hair and Rockstars mane just right, and I didn’t know that a shower would start in the in the middle of the shoot but I’d get the most amazing sun kissed photos with rain drops in them. I didn’t know any of that. But it happened.
I’m so grateful that I can call Abby a friend. That she has been beside me no matter what through these years. And I’m so glad that I was able to take these shots for her, of her and Rockstar. But really, I’m so glad that this was the shoot, where all of those things I dream about come together in that one package.
Thank you, Abby. Thank you for letting me take these.
