As all great modern friendships go, I met Alexis through a mom group on Facebook two years ago. Our friendship blossomed over our love for photography and we started chatting more frequently; text messages turned into phone calls, phone calls turned into video calls, and video calls turned into a roundtrip flight to Los Angeles. Alexis took the long 8 hour trek across the country to meet face to face!
We fell into sync as though it was a normal afternoon and this was something we did all the time. We made the best of our 24 hours and started off with a shoot in Vasquez Rocks, and then a trip to Huntington Beach complete with churros and Karaoke. With a harrowing ride back to LAX the next morning, we may or may not have pushed the gas tank to the limit, with 30 minutes to departure. alll because.....we kinda sorta, got distracted with puppies at the mall. And that right there defines our relationship haha!
On a whim I submitted two images from our shoot to Vogue Italia and one was accepted! This is my first accepted image by the publisher after months of submitting previous work. It is just so fitting that the image that finally spoke to them, is one that was created with my sista from another mista. What a great way to end our trip, and begin the next level of our friendship.
