Life happens, I get it. We do dumb things, we're human.
Yesterday afternoon I found out that some pretty intense fog was going to roll in (which doesn't happen often in Florida) and I immediately wanted to gather some friends and go make photos. I rushed to put together a post on Social Media and it wasn't until about 11PM that I had some friends lined up.
This morning, the drive over was iffy... cool patch of fog // blue skies + sun // cool patch of fog // blue skies + sun. I started to doubt that the fog would hang around and the look of photos that I wanted to capture would vanish. The traffic to where I was going was the WORST. I got there 30 minutes after call time. When I finally get to the location.. and I LOCK MY KEYS IN THE TRUNK OF MY CAR. Are you kidding me?! Literally the first time I'd ever done that. I clipped them to my bag, scouted, came back to my car, threw everything in my trunk to head to the restroom and CLUNK. Keys locked inside of car. Thankfully, AAA got there reasonably fast, but the fog still died in the middle of the shoot.
I'm enjoying the ability to go out and shoot at the drop of a hat, and I'm thankful for friends that want to come along with me.
HUGE THANK YOU to Rachel, Lauren, and Andrew. You guys rock.
I photographed Rachel and her bae, Jonathan, on their wedding day last year. I worked with Jon back in my days with Apple. View their photos here.
I worked with Lauren at my previous job before going full-time with my photo work. Andrew is a rad dude who plays drums and we both share the same love for coffee and donuts. I had the honor of introducing them to The Donut Experiment, and words weren't needed to know that it changed their lives.
Enough words. Here are some selects from this morning on Anna Maria Island.
It's the sticks and stones that wear us down that often save our lives.
