Oh my lanta I can't even find, well no, there are no words to describe how amazing Gabi is! I adore her so much. She is so fun and easy to pose, she just gets it. I have the pleasure of knowing a few of Gabi's family members as well.
I worked with her sister Alli at Wal-Mart many years ago and currently work with her mom. I adore them all. Many moons ago I had decided I wanted a puppy, that did not go well, and he ended up going to live with Gabi. I'm not even lying when I say those two were destined for each other. Gabi is one of those people with a heart of gold, she is always nice to other people and never has anything bad to say about others. A few years ago I photographed Gabi in some vintage dresses I had picked up. I uh...wasn't aware the sun set earlier than I had last remembered, so when it was time for the shoot...well it was mostly dark!
Earlier this year Gabi answered the call for my wardrobe shoot. I had ordered this way cool vintage bomber jacket, and she was perfect for it. When I ordered it, it said it was one size. If you're a bigger girl like me, you are familiar with one size actually being like a small. Imagine my surprise when it arrived and was bigger than my XL size!
I've never done portraits on the sidewalk before but really wanted to try it out. I was worried about all the cars and people walking around. I worried for nothing! It was a super windy Sunday morning, and Blackfoot is like a ghost town on Sundays. We also had decided to do our shoot at noon. Normally I only do early morning or evening shoots. But we got blessed with clouds! Unlike wind, clouds are my friend.
It was so much fun trying different things out! I usually try to narrow down my top favorite photos for sharing, I couldn't with these! If you want to play dress up in vintage fashion, let's make a session!
