A Visit From an Old Friend
So last week I was graced by the presence of an old friend of mine. She’s one of those friends where we may as well be cousins since we grew up that way. Our dads worked together for years, so we were always over at each other’s houses growing up, playing on the playground during the company picnic etc. Typically we stay in touch via each other’s tweets, texts, and Facebook updates, as over the years we’ve gone on to lead our own lives.
For the past few years now she’s been doing modeling and burlesque on the side as Trixi Firecracker, so we’ve been planning on doing a shoot together for some time. My family moved down here though so it was always a “If we’re ever in the same town…” goal.
Last week, she came down to visit a few of her friends that don’t live too far away and so she was nice enough to grace me with her presence. We got to catch up with each other. Loves, losses, new friends, old friends, and just the random catching up that friends do.
The shoot went well, despite having a pint sized assistant. Or because of the pint sized assistant, take your pick. Now I want you to keep in mind that normally when I schedule a shoot I don’t have my three year old in tow, but as this particular client was a family friend I couldn’t not introduce them. And of course she was as amused by his antics as the rest of us.
We did a simple one hour session with a pin-up style shoot, and after that we went to go see the Dale Earnhardt Statue in downtown Kannapolis. In the year I’ve been down here I think this is only the 2nd time I’ve seen it, and it’s definitely the first time I’ve actually been down at the Research Campus area to walk around. I’ll definitely be down there with my camera again in the future.
