BFF

15 May

I haven’t been updating as much recently because 1) I was sick for a long time and 2) my best friend and love is deploying to Afghanistan. Everything has sort of been last minute and hectic for the past month and I’m just trying to go along with it all.

While it was more of an extended break that I didn’t anticipate (didn’t expect getting sick or a deployment), I wanted to enjoy the last days/hours/minutes with someone I care so much about since he will be gone until January. Although we’ve probably spent more time apart than together since I’ve known the guy, he is undeniably my best friend. People always ask me if I’m fine with my boyfriend deploying. Yeah, I’m fine with my boyfriend deploying. I don’t need to be holding someone’s hand all day long or having someone to automatically take along with to weddings or parties. I’m not worried about the relationship deteriorating. While it’s a little sad waking up without him or not being able to say “I love you” every night, it’s not the worst part of it. The hard part isn’t the boyfriend part – it’s the best friend part. Experiencing things that I know he would’ve enjoyed as well, the unconditional emotional support even when I’m not being girlfriend-y, the bickering without consequence, and, above all, the fact I can’t bombard him with photos of stupid shit all day long. A lot of my closest and best friends are spread across the world but it never gets easier to see another one leave.

One of my/our closest friends, Aimee, decided to take some photos of us as a birthday present to me. This was actually before we found out he’d be deploying but I’m glad we did it since he’ll be gone for a while. Thank you, Aimee, for the great photos and fun day in downtown LA!!

Do me a favor and keep Kenny in your prayers and send lots of positive thoughts while he’s deployed!

So, is it January yet??

Did a fun shoot with Aimee and Juliet a bit back (check my old post here). Thank you Aimee for the wonderful photos and Juliet for the amazing hair and makeup! I am such an awkward “model” but Aimee definitely makes me look good every time.

And at once I knew I was not magnificent.

Aimee – Back to field photos?

11 Apr

Went out with fellow photographer, Aimee Tran, to go shoot some fun portraits andĀ frolicĀ in a beautiful field by an observatory in the OC. We caught some nice light by the setting sun and were hoping that the yellow flowers would be blooming but with all the rain and “crazy” weather we have been having in SoCal, the flowers ended up blooming late so we didn’t have them for this shoot. Love adventuring with good company!

Aimee is an aspiring wedding and portrait photographer. Check out her work:

She also did some shots of me which you can see here (I’m def no model but she was patient and we had a lot of fun).

She brought along some awesome props (vintage cameras, vintage suitcases, her bf’s dog tags, etc.) which were so fun to work with!
