It’s so cliche but do you have those friends that you see and it feels like you can pick up right where you left off? Whitney and I were the best of friends in middle school. We were friends right at that awkward stage in life full of AIM screen names, embarrassing crushes, etc. She reached out to me last fall to do some head shots for her photography business and the second we met up, it felt like nothing had changed.
We were still the giggling little middle schoolers I remembered, laughing as we walked around downtown Aiken taking pictures. The difference between then and now is that we got to talk husbands and photography and career versus crushes and instant messages and future careers. It was so nice getting to reconnect and just catch up on life.
We decided to meet at the Aiken Public Library and walk down South Boundary taking pictures in locations as we went. Fortunately downtown Aiken is filled with amazing locations so we were able to find lots of beautiful spots for pictures. Whitney even braved the South Boundary car traffic to take some pictures in the street with the oak trees in the background. She has honestly always been the most beautiful person inside and out so it felt effortless photographing her as we walked around.
