Road Trip with Amy Lynn Photos Pt. 1 Ophelia Shoot

My summer is coming to a close with school approaching in the Fall.  As it is my first year of what my parents refer to as "adulthood," I have been trying to save money and strive to succeed in my passions.  If you were wondering, those goals don't always go hand in hand. For the first time in my young life I understand what it means to be broke and happy; with a little financial assistance from the rents of course. I don't know where I'm going, but all of the signs along this path have pointed me in the direction of destinations I would have never dreamed of reaching.  TO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING MY PROGRESS THROUGH THE INTERNET, THANK YOU.  TO ANYONE WHO IS NEW, WELCOME TO THE HIGHEST POINT IN MY NONEXISTANT CAREER'S CLIMAX THUS FAR.  Alright, let me just say how thankful I am to Amy Lynn for taking me on as a friend, an intern, believing in my abilities, and inviting me on the most spontaneously radical trip.   When she asked me to go cross country with her in one week to shoot with Audrey and hang out with her best friend in NY for her birthday I immediately agreed.  We drove to New Jersey and Audrey was nice enough to let us stay with her for a few days while we crammed in as many photo shoots as we possible could.  I think it's safe to assume that we were all exhausted after shooting in the heat everyday.  I'm amazed at how much work both Amy and Audrey put into place, but what would work be worth without a little play?  We had amazing vegan food, met some of Audrey's closest friends and employees, and lounged around in her beautiful home between shoots. If you don't follow @Akitching we can't be friends.  If so then you will know that she exudes fantasy and fairytale in all of her work.  This is no exception to her personal life.  I have been following Audrey's career through the internet since the impressionable age of 15.  Since she was and is to this day my favorite role model, meeting her was an unbelievable experience. If not for her impact on my life I would have never dyed my hair in the first place. I only wish there was more time to ask her all the questions I was too shy to vocalize. Amy and I, although we had a great time, were relieved that the next stop on our trip would be 100% relax time.  Saying we experienced difficulty along the way is an understatement, but I'll save that story for another day.  I would hate to short you any of the details.  


Thanks for reading,
