When your bae comes to the shoot with you.

So the previous post's photoshoot, I had my buddy coming with me. Aubrey Clemens, one of my BFF since the day we met at the ballet studio (hahaha) - she is one of few people who understand me sometimes more than I do, who I can count on, or show my weakness, or be truly honest. She is also my "real life siri" - although my English is getting better everyday (I hope), I still struggle A LOT, sometimes nobody knows what the heck I say, sometimes I can't even repeat what I just said, SHE GETS IT. She transforms my "Japanglish" to actual English, {snap} this quick!

 

 

It was a surprise - I didn't even know she was coming to the shoot until a week before - she attended the Anthropologie's Spring Fashion Show that I walked, and the photographer Joe fell in love with her beauty (well look at the picture below), he personally contacted her to join the shoot! When she told me about it I got oh so psyched! Now the shoot is gonna be extra fun!!

We were ALWAYS goofing/joking around the ballet studio, had many sleepovers, drunk nights, and hair colors, now we are (a little) grownups and woking and creating art together like this - it's simply so cool, isn't it?
