I'll Be Seeing You.

Photographs by Blake Jacobsen.
Styling and Makeup by Erika Lipps.

Hello everyone!!!

So here's my mystery surprise that I've been talking about for the past few days!

About a month of so back I got a Facebook message from a girl from my school named Erika Lipps. I was in utter shock because Erika is probably one of the most beautiful girls I've ever seen, and I consider her to be the most fashionable person at my school, let alone the most fashionable person I've ever met in my life. Ever since my eighth grade year I have looked up to and admired Erika for her sense of style and her natural beauty! Imagine how shocked and flattered I was when I read the email that Erika and her friend Blake Jacobsen (whom also goes to my school) wanted me to model for them! Wow, wow, wow! Blake Jacobsen is a phenomenal photographer and easily the best dressed male I have ever seen. I really couldn't believe that Erika and Blake wanted me, the amature little fashion blogger to model for them. Of course I took the opportunity right up and oh my goodness... It was honestly one of the best experiences I've ever had. For me it was like realizing that your idols were everything that you always wished them to be and more. Not only was doing a photo shoot with Blake and Erika a complete honor, but I really connected with them both. I have never in my life felt an instant connection with someone like I did with them. It was like...I had already known them for years. My social awkwardness vanished and in it's place I found myself talking nonstop about all of the things we had in common. All of my life I've felt as though I would never really meet anyone who was quite like me, but Erika and Blake proved me wrong. Everything felt just so...right with them. We had so much in common that it felt like I was looking at myself in a mirror, but seeing them on the other side.

Since this was an extremely picture heavy post, I won't go into huge detail about everything. Tomorrow I plan on doing a little "information" post about Blake and Erika and more detail about the shoot and the absolutely amazing time I had. Looking forward to doing the post! Hope you all enjoyed the pictures. I know I'm in LOVE with them! See you all tomorrow ;)

Oh my goodness, you have no idea how impatient I have been for this post!! I've been checking your blog every half hour for the past 24 hours! Haha. Anyway...
That is so exciting!!!! These are gorgeous pictures, I love the styling/photography...everything's so perfect. Congratulations on the opportunity--you did an awesome job modeling! The first few pictures remind me a little of the music video for Mine, by Taylor Swift...I just happened to see that video at a friend's house the other day,only this version is even better cause you used vintage records!!
This is amazing...can't wait for the next post either.
