I hope you're in the mood to look at pictures, because I had the worst time trying to edit these down. Bonnie and Emma Kate did SUCH A GOOD JOB yesterday! They were up for anything and SO MUCH FUN!
I'm starting with these photos that Sandee sent me of Bonnie and Emma Kate when they were little. As you can see, they have been models for a very long time.
And this is them, today.
Now I'm going to tell you just how incredibly hard core I am. This next shot was the among the first of the day. While I was shooting it, the camera pressed against my eye in such a way that made my contact FALL OUT ONTO THE PAVEMENT! WHAT?!! In 15 years of shooting, I have never had this happen. I guess there's a first for everything. But I was freaking out because I'm BLIND without it, and I can't shoot with my right eye (for some reason). I knew if I didn't find it fast, the shoot would be over before it even began. So my superhero side kicked in and I spotted it laying on the pavement. It was almost dried out, (the kiss of death), so I bionically dusted it off and stuck it back into my Wonder Woman eye. I am just hard like that. ...Yes, now I'm blind in my left eye but it was TOTALLY worth it. :0)
We found the best little retro barbershop. The owner was so nice, she let us take over the whole place. Can I just say again how much I love Boerne?
Who said libraries aren't sexy?
Then Sandee, always full of great ideas, found this book which inspired this next one.
Charlie's Angels at the gas station.
And then we found the laundry mat (thanks Melody). This is my favorite shot of the day...(once again Sandee's idea).
And I have been meaning to get this shot for a year. So you can actually SEE Sandee, the woman who helps me SO MUCH behind the camera. Finally I got her in front of it! You can see where Bonnie gets her good looks.
As most swimming pools are at noon, the lighting was CRAP. But how else are you supposed to end a hot Texas day?
Bonnie leaves for college in a month, so I just want to wish you all the best sweetie. This past year flew by and we are certainly going to miss you. May your life be an adventure. May all your wishes come true. And come back to visit often!!
Seniors, if you have a dress that needs trashing, call me!
Also, thank you to everyone who took the time out to wish Melissa well! You all are so sweet! Melissa, I've been thinking about you all day. xo
