Me!

This shoot is something I will never forget! It was the last day of our trip and Gina and I wanted to do some pictures of each other. We spotted this awesome spot, waaaay down the beach with huge rocks and saw how the waves crashed up against them so perfectly. We decided to buy some cowboy hats and make the trek down with only an hour and a half before we had to check out of our hotel to leave for home. It was about 95˚ of heat and lots of sand to walk through toting along our huge cameras. There were several moments where I didn't think I was going to make it and thought I was going to collapse from exhaustion... but we made it and IT WAS SO AMAZING! We started shooting and out of nowhere, this Mexican man appeared and tried to help us climb the big rocks. He was really nice but it was a little creepy because anything could have happened to us and there was nobody else around for miles. He said he wanted to watch us, which he did for a little while. Then he jumped into the ocean and I honestly don't know where he went after that!

Gina shot these of me... and I tweaked them in Photoshop. She did such an AMAZING job because I am so bad in front of the camera! I usually have the deer in headlights look but something in me just let loose and had fun with it! I will post hers that I shot soon.











Thanks Gina! xoxo
