Would you just look at these two...
Guys, Jessie (red dress!) was one of my first friends when I moved to Bozeman AND she designed my website AND she's always such a freaking blast to shoot with. This time, she brought a friend and Lexi was the icing on the cupcake. Look at these two. Just look at them.
Anyway, as Jessie was getting ready, Lexi and I did a few solo shots. This is how it went:
Lexi: "So I've never really had my picture taken. I'm going to be really awkward."
Me: "That's okay - it's not natural for most people to be in front of the camera. We'll just have fun and let you get warmed up a little."
Lexi: "Like this?"
Me: "Uhhh...yeah that'll definitely do! That's not what I had in mind when I heard awkward..."
Needless to say, girl's a natural. SO gorgeous! And so sweet! And smart! She's just finishing her degree in Community Health and will be heading into the medical field shortly.
Anyway, once Jessie was ready, I gave Lexi a short break to put Jessie to work. She's got the fierce face down like nobody's business.
She's knock-your-socks-off beautiful and has been such a blessing as a friend and as a long-running piece of my photography world.
We capped off our morning with something near and dear to my heart: a best friend session. My best friend and I used to do them regularly and they came to be known as our "seasonal engagements." It may seem silly and unnecessary, but I love having those tangible reminders of our friendship (yes I've printed them!) now that we're a few hours apart and don't see each other as often. In fact, it's probably time to update those bad boys ;)
We finished the day with tacos and margaritas at Toro (if you haven't been, go! The food is amazing). 'Twas a good day indeed. What are some traditions you have with your best friend? I want to hear about them!
