“Hey, Olivia, can you stand over here now?”
She moved compliantly into place.
“Now a little closer to the wall. Or, yeah, right there. Closer to the door. Wait, it’s propped open a bit. Be careful. I don’t want it to give you a black eye if it swings forward.”
I took two photos, directing her between shots, and then squealed as the door (yes, you guessed it) swung open. And it swung open fast. She jumped. I jumped. The poor man jumped.
Apparently he doesn’t usually find elegantly dressed prom-goers standing outside his workroom door. Oops.
He laughed. We laughed. And no eyes were blackened.
Ah, the adventures of downtown Bellingham. Gotta love it. Right, Olivia? 😛
P.S. Isn’t she stunning? Like, SO stunning!
In a collaboration with Gown & Glove Bridal Consignment and Love Beauty Bellingham, I hung out with and photographed fabulously beautiful Whatcom County high schoolers. This story is part of a series.
