During stormy weather two girls went out to play with a camera and an umbrella. Only this just wasn’t the typical Hialeah rain-shower, we are talking about Tropical Storm Isaac. Despite the rain and the creepy working men staring at us, Jael and I attempted to have a “hurricane shoot” nearby our house. I can’t quite remember the last time I had taken pictures of her and I was classifying into that category of photographer… I’m talking about the one that starts putting up pictures of her clients at home because there’s no time to shoot family and friends. Cough. Cough. So although she probably thought this was all about her, I will admit I wanted these pictures for selfish reasons. She’s growing up, and I don’t like it. Here she is.. sweet sixteen. My one and only, broccoli.
Messy wet hair, sticky humid car-seats, weird old men and crazy 40 mph winds… that’s how I’ll remember this day. Jael will be seventeen tomorrow and it’s because time is racing that I am happy to have these photos of her. Jael being silly in the rain while endlessly worrying about her hair getting in her face. Making weird noises and giving me freaky eyebrow looks. Talking about flames and Despicable Me. I love you. Now & forever.
