In April of 2010, I did a photography internship in Nashville with Sarah Barlow. During my time there, I built a lasting friendship with not only Sarah, but also my 3 fellow interns: Shannon, Kay, and Megs. Last fall, I had the opportunity to go to Chicago to shoot a wedding with Sarah. This year, surprisingly, has set me up with opportunities to see all three of my fellow interns too! Shannon and I have visited eachother several times (she’s in NorCal!), Kay was here for a visit last week, and Megs will be coming in just a couple of weeks! Too much fun :)
Kay is from Kentucky and her visit last week was her first time to the west coast. I had a blast showing her around! I just can’t believe how fast it went by. Between tons of shooting, some shopping, and lot’s of site-seeing, our days were packed!
I wanted to blog a little snippet of our fun day in LA :)
Keep an eye out for a post later this week of the portrait session I did of Kay while she was here!
We started our day out with the breathtaking views from the Griffith Observatory.
We then headed to Hollywood Blvd…..and….hung out with Leonardo Dicaprio?! Lol ;)We then spent a good amount of the afternoon hanging out near the Santa Monica Pier :)And…just as I was telling Kay that California isn’t what alot of people think it is…and they’re usually aren’t celebrities walking all around and movies being filmed wherever you go….we walk right into a film set on the beach! Haha! They were filming a Slim Jim commercial! (I only know this, because we were nosey and asked! hehe)As we were sitting on the beach, I freaked out when I saw what I thought was a small spider crawling by me. At closer glance, I realized that it was a tinyyyyy little crab! I got him to hang onto this shell and model for me for a little bit ;)Check out that “mussel” ha! :)
