Portraits {Kat}


Hey, I put some new shoes on
And suddenly everything's right
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on
And everybody's smiling, it's so inviting

Oh, short on money but long on time
Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
And I'm running late and I don't need an excuse
'Cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes
--Paulo Nutini 
New Shoes

 I was editing photos when this song popped up and I thought, "Hey, that's the perfect song for this post!" So there it is. I had a great big time doing this shoot with Kat, a photographer friend, just in time for her birthday. It's a milestone (and that's all I'm going to say about that) so we thought it fitting to have a photoshoot to remember ourselves by. We travelled all the way to this old church and saw the perfect spot-- a clearing at the back of the church surrounded by walls of bougainvilleas. We spent the afternoon clicking away, taking directions from each other until the sun set. Summer sunsets are beautiful everywhere! This I definitely know! 
This shoot was fun. It can be pretty intimidating shooting a photographer, especially as good as Kat, but this shoot was fun. I think shoots should be fun... it's one of those things which I equate to journeys... you should enjoy the process as much as the result. And enjoy we did! It helped that the sunlight was beautiful, not even a hint of the clouds that poured rain on my part of the city an hour before we made the trip. And since it was a Saturday, people were out and about, so there was a certain energy to the entire place that you only feel when you go to the smaller towns that surround Dumaguete. Hopefully we can return to this place again soon!
