Snowy Photo Shoot with
Memorial Day behind us, it is now the official start of summer even if
we don't hit the summer solstice until later in June, and I am super
excited to have about two weeks to myself coming up in June, but before
we get to my summer girl time, I have one more update from the spring
that I have been dying to post, especially since it involves Heidi and
it occurred about a month ago.
As most of you know, Heidi and I went shopping at a thrift store late in
April, and when we do an outing like that in the morning, we also try
and set up a photo shoot afterwards. We'll find places to change outfits
(usually our cars), and then we'll find a park or other pretty settings
to do a photo shoot together.
If you have seen Heidi's fun video entitled "Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Heidi,"
then you may remember from one of the final scenes that Heidi is coming
out of a store, and it's actually snowing outside. Well, yours truly
took that portion of the video, and our plan was to leave the thrift
store and then do a photo shoot at a nearby park. When we saw the snow
falling so hard, we both kind of looked at each other and thought,
"Seriously? It's May and it's snowing outside?!!" I suppose we kinda
live in a crazy place weather-wise, but to have it snow on the day of
our planned photo shoot? The t-girl gods were definitely not smiling
upon us. Either that or they determined that we had so much fun shopping
inside that we needed another dose of reality outside.
Regardless, we had the the time, and we had the outfits waiting, and so
the two of us drove to a nearby park and began changing right there in
the parking lot. Who knows if anyone else was around to see us there in
plain site in our bras as we changed our clothing, but we've done this
before, and we were in new outfits soon enough. The only problem was we
had a chilly wind blowing, and it was still snowing outside darn it.
looked around for any place to take a photo or three, and we saw a small
covered bridge in the middle of the park, and so we grabbed our things
and ran like the girls we are over to the wooden structure. Though the
bridge was covered, it had no walls, and so the snow was blowing in on
use beneath the roof of the bridge. We were still two girls, though,
with our cameras and pretty outfits, and so we just had to brave the
snow and take a few photos. Heidi was even brave enough to sit on this
tiny railing on the bridge and pose as only she can, and I take a photo
of Heidi posing in front of her camera with the self timer on. It's kind
of a fun "behind the scenes" look at Heidi, who in my opinion can strike
the poses better than any other girl I've seen. Way to go Heidi!!
the photos on the bridge, it looked as if our only hope was a large
tree, and so we dashed to one side of the park and set back up beneath a
large tree. We tried a few more photos, but it was so cold and blustery,
and I thought that I could feel Heidi shivering as we huddled together
for yet another pose. After a few more solo pics beneath the tree, the
weather had the best of us, and so we decided to drive for about 10
minutes and see if we could get out of the storm. There was a house of
worship on a hillside nearby, and the grounds always have the prettiest
flower gardens, and so we headed in that direction in hopes that we
could manage some pretty photos in front of the tulip beds.
When we arrived, the snow had settled down a little bit, and as Heidi
and I got out of our cars and observed the scene, Heidi said, "Give me
one more minute to change into a new dress." I ran back to the safety of
my car to stay warm and dry and waited for her to change one more time.
As soon as I saw her car door open again, I got and and ran over to her,
and as soon as I saw her dress, I thought she would part the heavens
right then and there. My goodness, I don't know that I've ever seen a
prettier dress on a prettier girl, and even the tulips stood at rapt
attention when they saw her approach in that dress.
