Sierra + Jordan
I've got to hand it to these two. We were both watching the weather all day Saturday, and it was forecast for nothing but rain all night. I offered for us to move the session indoors, but Sierra wanted to try and shoot with some outdoor christmas lights, so nevertheless we persisted. My apprehension increased when we met up and not only were there no Christmas lights all lit up anywhere in sight, but it was slowly and consistently drizzling. We relocated to one of those roadside Christmas Tree tents hoping and praying they had lights on inside and that maybe we could wait out the rain. By the time we had shot out the Christmas Tree stand, it was almost raining harder. So out into the freezing rain we went, and these guys were the chillest about it the entire time. If they were freezing, they didn't let on - and they humored me on every silly request. And I'd be lying if I said those water droplets reflecting all the colored lights didn't look really dang cool.
I am not a super on-the-fly kinda girl. I'm more of a best laid plans kinda girl. So taking every step of this shoot with a bit of faith really felt like I was livin' life on the edge - but it couldn't have unfolded better if I had planned it and everything had gone perfectly. And hands down my favorite moment was when I told Sierra the whole look was very "Urban Outfitters Christmas" and she replied that that was their aesthetic. Boom. What can I say, it was lit.
