I’ve always thought my friend Nicole was super photogenic and we’ve talked about doing a photo shoot for over a year now. It took her getting a new job and moving away for us to make this happen. While I’m sad to see her leave California, I’m glad that I was able to capture her amazing smile before she left.

She had the idea of doing a 1950’s themed shoot. She found a dress online that she just had to have and pinterest’d so many additional ideas! She was absolutely amazing — despite neither of us really knowing what we were doing she spent 3 hours at the stylist getting her hair and make-up done. I think we spent 3 hours outside laughing, giggling, and just having a great time. You can see it plastered all over her face!

Who knew pay-phones still existed?! Apparently at this random park in Palo Alto they do! We had some fun with it!

My oldest friend, Zack, served as my amazing assistant and also reserved the Nikon 85mm f/1.4 lens. It did some amazingly wonderful things with these photos 🙂
