This awesome lady is Janice. I met her about a year and a half ago at a Delaware Professional Photographers meeting. We were both first time guests of other photographers. We found ourselves seated next to one another and would occasionally whisper something. Afterwords, after knowing her for maybe an hour, she asked if I wanted to go to Longwood Gardens with her friends the next week. I said sure! We hung out all day and practiced taking photos of each other. We’ve been great friends ever since!
Janice is an awesome accessorizer. She has the cutest hats and jewelry. I knew her birthday was coming up and I was set on getting her a necklace. I stopped at Claire’s in the mall and couldn’t find her a decent necklace. Then I saw the hats. This girl can pull off the cute hats! When I saw the red one I knew I had to get it for her. We had plans to practice lighting on the beach before her birthday dinner at Agave so I kept it in the Claire’s bag in my backseat, thinking she wouldn’t even notice. We get to the beach and she’s getting her stuff out of the car and screams ‘Did you get a hat from Claire’s?!’ I was like ‘Uh… that’s your birthday present…’ I really wanted it to be a surprise but I’m glad she found it because it became a great prop for our practice session!
