Olivia: a Mount Baker High Junior

“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.
