The book I’ve been making for Laura includes photos and stories from her friends. Part of the fun was getting to take pictures of her peeps, including my buddy Jen, mastermind behind NewVintage Photography. Jen’s taught me so much, about life and photography. She’s helped me time after time, and still answers her phone when I call saying, “Why, Why, Why! Why is Photoshop being stupid” and “How do I get my picture to do that” and “My camera’s broken … oh, it’s just that?”
We’ve been working together at the newspaper for over four years. But we kinda grew up together because her grandmother babysat every summer when I was growing up. So we gots some history, and that’s cool.
