It seems insane to me that until this shoot I had never taken pictures with Kristen for this blog. I mean, it sort of makes sense since I started this blog after she left Toronto for Montreal, but she’s such an important part of my life, it’s crazy it took me so long to get my act (and tripod) together for a bff shoot (plus Didi!) while in the same city.
These photos are so telling of our friendship – it’s just constant laughter and absurdity. It also worked out perfectly (maybe some would argue not) that the wind was so insane this day. I think it really added to the sillyness of this shoot and our priceless facial expressions while our hair was being blown in every direction.
As for our styles, they are pretty different (unlike our personalities). I think at one point we dressed fairly similar (Kristen’s boyfriend definitely used to mix us up from behind), but my style took a more definite vintage girly turn, while Kristen’s went more 90s grunge queen. Pretty polar opposite styles which I think look really fun when put together, kind of like night and day.
