I think that Annie is the most famous person to ever grace this blog. It’s Annie… you know… ANNIE’S EATS Annie… you know… the cooking queen?! Yeah, HER! Did I just get major bonus points here for being her friend?! Here’s hoping! I have ZERO shame in the name dropping. 😉
Annie and I met a few years ago when I first photo’d her. 🙂 I knew RIGHT away we’d be friends. She was freshly married then, in medical school… and without a cooking blog.
Now, she’s in her residency, has an ADORABLE son named Andrew, has a RIDICULOUSLY successful cooking blog (you guys would die if you knew how many hits she got a day… I’ll put it to you this way… SHE WINS!), and now Annie lives in YUMTOWN, USA!!!!!
When I was in KC, I randomly sent her a text… “I want to photo you in your kitchen… doing your thing!” And so… THAT is exactly what we did.
You see, a couple of times a year I like to photograph my girlfriends… all by myself… just because 🙂 For me, it’s relaxing, ridiculously inspiring, and REALLY fun. This is going to sound cheesy… but whatever… it’s MY blog and I can do what I want! 😉 After Annie’s session, I was on a serious life high for two days. For some reason, this session was a bit different than other sessions I’ve shot by myself. It’s just SUCH a great feeling to go out with a camera, zero expectations, talk about life, giggle like school girls, get to know each other on a deeper level… oh and take beautiful photos. I LOVE seeing my friends through my lens. As a matter of fact, that night I made a list of all of the women in my life that I’d like to photograph…. so, this session was the start of a personal little project, just for me. Yeah yeah yeah, okay… cheesefest over… back to regularly scheduled “AYKM’s” 😉
THENNNNN… I started having all of these crazy ideas… I saw this field on my way out to her house… so when we were done she made a quick outfit change… and we loaded up my FJ cruiser and headed out 🙂 PS Annie… do you still have my yellow flowered barrette? I can’t find it anywhere?!
That Coca Cola thing she’s sitting on… that usually sits on top of my cabinets… WACKY BOBBI STRIKES AGAIN!!!!!
Every professional needs a good head shot…. that’s EXACTLY what that photo is on the right. The PERFECT head shot… if I do say so myself 😉 I’m telling you… head shots are a WHOLE lot easier said than done. There’s a real art form to it. Don’t ask my why! It’s just tough. Oh, and the cookies on the left… yeah, those were a gift to me. YEAHHH… healthy train fail. But… THEY ARE SO FLIPPING GOOOOOOOD!!!!!! I’m kind of a chocolate chip cookie addict… and she knows it. 🙂
Oh yes… she’s reading a cook book… in an apron… in an abandoned field… oh yes… just another day. 😉
I’m sorry you’re so damn cute! PS. Because we were talking so much… the light left us… and left us way too quickly! Note to self… FOCUS BOBBI! 😉 Thank you fast glass and High ISO capabilities 😉
SOOOOO… Maybe this one isn’t necessarily cooking blog appropriate… but AYKM with her GORGEOUSNESS?! This one is absolutely my favorite… hands down… NO contest… my favorite! ❗
