Yesterday Kylie and I woke up at 4AM for a sunrise photo session. I had envisioned thick fog covering an endless expanse of bright green cornfields. It wasn't a foggy morning, but we found a gorgeous location near a soybean field with the purple-pink sky changing colors as the sun rose behind us. It was magical. We met before dawn with tired eyes and our cameras and Mexican blankets and floral crowns in tow. I brought along a massive cup of iced coffee as we drove around, scouting locations. We listened to music and chatted easily about the past and the future. Once we found a spot, we hopped out and took photos with my 35mm camera from the 70s and a few digital photos as well. Here are some of my favorite digital shots. I'll share the 35mm photos once they're all developed.
We agreed to have as many photoshoots as possible before she and her little family move south to their new hometown. It will be so difficult to have over 1,000 miles of fields and small towns and highways between us. I'm soaking up these last few weeks of quality time with my best friend.
