A couple Saturdays ago, my friend Rachel called me while I was out with some friends.
Rachel: What are you doing for the next few hours?
Me: Uh… taking a shower eventually?
Rachel: GREAT, want to come be in my photo shoot?
Me: Why not?
To which she responded with many thanks and a lot of I love yous. (Later she apologized for saying I love you every time she hung up the phone:)
Rachel is a photographer, among other things. Her card says “Community Architect” and it’s completely accurate. When my friends asked who was the girl on the phone, I said, “She’s basically the coolest person I know, but I can’t explain why, which makes her cooler.” Rachel had a vision to do a photo shoot featuring vintage dresses, braided hair, and muted colors.
I’ll be honest. Playing dress up is fun when you’re a little girl. It’s still fun when you’re a big girl.
Here are some of the photos…
PS: This is how spring sounds.
