If I’d have to count my blessings, my friends would be at the top of the list. I’m not sure when I got so lucky to have such remarkable humans surround me not only at parties and fancy dinners but during this time in our youth when everyone is trying to find their bearing on who they are and their purpose. When you find people who even remotely support you in your dreams no matter how ludicrous they seem; hunie you better hold on to them…well maybe not as tightly as Drake but you get what I mean 😀
I’m not sure whether you can tell but there’s so much love, life and laughter oozing out of these pictures I’m almost startled by how bland my profile looks. I’m gonna take a minute and share a little secret with you guys…every single time I see a camera my brain seems to fog up faster than a chilly morning in Elko, Nevada. Ironic right? I’ve honestly never felt so compelled to act like a super model scouted from the countryside whose grace in front of a camera is nothing but a blanket word from a grizzled romantic novel from 1920, but perhaps the fact that I was standing next to this bi-gorgeous human (who I still don’t understand why modelling agencies in France haven’t signed her yet) was somewhat threatening.
Our attempt to recreate glam rock was by far a much more tasking experience than we initially bargained for making it clear that throwing on a leather jacket and biker boots just wasn’t enough to slay this look cold but you’ll have to bear with us. Shooting anywhere in Nairobi isn’t easy these days and all these Johnny Depp movies are yet to teach us how to get into character. But we did have tonnes of fun!
Happy new month loves,
