It's been awhile since I've had Jamie in front of the camera. Life has been funny like that. But like old friends that haven't been in touch in awhile you pick right up without missing a beat. It made for an awesome start to a Monday.
Story time: First day of spring 2014. It was quite the warm day which is not surprising being that North Carolina has some serious bipolar weather in the winter/spring time. You can start the week bundled up because the low is 15 then by Wednesday you're seeing highs in the 60s and 70s, but I digress.
Jamie and I started the day shooting at an abandoned ampitheather which made for some great images but eventually we got kicked of the property for trespassing. (To be honest I didn't see a sign officer 😏) So we packed up and made our way to a spot I shot at a few years prior. It had some cool trails and a boat launch area...which brings us to this tree. After working together awhile Jamie and I had a pretty good connection. There were moments when we both knew what the other was thinking and an idea would come to life. When we came upon this tree this is what happened: my mouth dropped open and I started to point. At the same exact time J is stripping, runs over to the tree, does a quick swipe inside for webs, insects and wildlife then proceeds to tuck herself inside. Hence, this.
Besides not making sure she had sunscreen on her back we had a pretty awesome time on this day. Poor Bria had to sit forward on the drive back because her back was slightly toasty. Dem clouds tho 😍
This day on a butte overlooking Albuquerque in 2010 will always be one of may favorites. Pascale and I became friends through Flickr because of the 365 Day Project. I was in town visiting another friend and made a little time to link up and shoot. This was shot in the Petroglyph National Monument. We made our way to a neighborhood in the area, parked, and proceeded to hike up the side. Weather wise it wasn't bad for an October day but after we made it to the top she was already shedding her clothes and enjoying the breeze. It was peaceful up there, just me and my muse for the time. Once we were finished we made our way back down the butte. I know I slept really well that night from all the hiking. It wasn't till after I got back to my friends house and checked a map of that area that we could have driven a few blocks over and made our way up there by car and walked maybe a quarter mile on a flat surface to get to the spot we shot at. If that were the case there would have been less of a story to tell :-)
