So my best friend Anna returned to Brazil recently, and as a last ditch effort to see her before she left I dragged her on my scouting trip for an engagement shoot I had the following weekend. Anna, good spirited as always, happily accompanied me as we felt out the area. Originally it was purely meant to be a scouting trip to check lighting, find good back drops, etc. But in the end it turned into its own special adventure that I will always treasure.
Today's shoot was a little bit silly and a whole lot of fun :) Anna, a good friend of mine from Brazil (who also just so happens to be graduating high school here in Albuquerque, NM with me), is bright, funny, and gorgeous. She's sarcastic, excited all the time, and a little bit weird; everything I could ever ask for in a friend.
Cory is one of the most comedic people I know. He's always making jokes and fooling around. But during this shoot he was more serious than comedic. It was kind nice to see his more focused side, but I also missed his care free smiles and jokes. Luckily, after some joking on my part and a few laughs, he let his handsome smile come out.
Raina and I are what you'd call unlikely friends. We had most of the same classes all throughout high school but we didn't really talk or even become friends until our junior year. We had just started to get to know each other when we attended a presentation on "going abroad while in high school." When the presentation ended I asked her if she would go abroad with me. She jokingly said yes, unaware of how serious I was. A few weeks later I started pestering her about filling out the application. Soon after, we were on our way to Spain and to becoming great friends.
Sometimes I wonder where the world would be with out talented writers.
Fortunately, for all of us book lovers out there, the world is full of them! And Jessica is one of those wonderful writers.
I first met Jessica in my sophomore year of high school. She was quiet and a bit eccentric, in love with Buffy the Vampire and writing.
