Caitlin and I met in middle school through the youth group but really became friends in high school because we shared a lot of the same interests. Then in college we were in the same small group and spent a majority of freshmen year at Waffle House, Starbucks, and Moe’s together. Since then, Caitlin has become a nurse and moved to Tennesee (which after seeing the pictures on her phone, I now very much want to make a trip that way).
Before she moved, it wasn’t uncommon for me to recruit her to try out a new lens or just get practice some practice in. So trying out my studio when she had a few free hours in town was completely logical.
