the thing you cant give someone is their drive. their ultimate motivation. their never-gonna-stop mentality.
you can teach other things. but this, is often what separates one person from another and their path towards achieving.
kris is hands down the hardest working guy i’ve ever met. he is constantly juggling a schedule and list of things that puts me to shame.
i met kris a few years ago. i remember asking him very pointed questions in the car. just not wasting time, we got to become great friends. we just clicked and ever since, he’s been one of my dearest friends. there is a different connection and appreciation sharing each others goals and achievements with someone who really truly understands. he has always been my cheerleader and been the first to make a big of even the smallest things I’ve accomplished.
last week i was standing in line at the airport and i heard a familiar voice. took me a second and then i totally screamed in that little store. “omg this is my friend. i know him, this is Kris. omygosh they’re playing him in the airport!” the store lady pretended to be excited with me. one thing i love, is being able to watch close friends head toward success, to get updates, to see them on stage opening night. i feel such a proud mama in those moments.
i adore being in the presence of such talented friends. such hard workers. all encompassing, it spurs me on and inspires me more.
i’ve been driving past this spot weekly for almost a year. i always always saw a shot there. finally got to make one, and it turned out exactly as i saw in my head…only better because you cant time some shopping cart lady bombing it.
this is seattle light. it is my favorite dessert. it is my favorite person in the world. i’d shoot this light over any sun, any beam of light.
sometimes its very good there is not printed commentary of what was being said on a shoot.
perfect timing for the laugh, i adore this image. what a good smile he has.
last year these other boys joined in with kris and I was so happy to see so. they made a switch and now they are just complete. what a fun group they are.
they just announced today they will be playing at this years Capitol Hill Block Party. very good things.
if you haven’t checked them out, please do your self a favor and put him in your ears.
