I was in the checkout at the Gap the morning after I arrived in Seattle. I was rushed. I was disheveled. I was exhausted. I was recognized.
When I gave my zipcode, since it was still a Florida one, a woman behind me suddenly said,
"Are you Carrie Stroud?"
I turned around. "Yes" -- and my inner voice said, "Yahoo I must be famous!"
But no, not really:)
"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh!" I said. Andrea who has been emailing me for the past year. Andrea who has been super complimentary of my work. Andrea who has become a great photographer herself and is so excited to learn more and more each day. I love Andrea.
However, I was so rushed so I blubbered something stupid and said see ya and ran out the door.
Thankfully, she still liked me anyway.
Fast forward to our get together. An adorable family shoot and teaching session. They are the coolest and cutest bunch ever. Andrea has a great camera and simply wants to take better pictures of her family, so I was able to show her a few of my techinques. Her daughters were the perfect models too. I really can't believe I get paid to have that much fun!
this gal would not smile. but does she need to with that sweet face?
I about died when I saw these glorious fall colors.
Milkshake break. Mandatory.
Thank you my new friend!
