When Erika reached out to me at the beginning of the year saying she wanted to do a Friends show inspired session with her sister and cousin, I was so excited to get started. I would look on yard sale sites and keep my eyes peeled for orange couches when I would go anywhere, but nothing had the right price for only using it once, and we both thought, how would we haul the couch when we found one? Erika is a think out of the box kind of person and I admire her creativity. She ended up buying a bench and orange throw blanket! Such a clever idea and most all of you figured out what the session was themed after!
The preparation for this session was well thought out right down to the different colored umbrellas and splashing in the fountain.
Erika’s sister, Jessica and their cousin, Shana were Erika’s first friends in life. They were together all of the time at their grandma’s house, and it’s quite the reunion when they all get together nowadays. Life has them living far apart, but they always are just a text away. They have special nicknames for each other and special goodbye sayings.
Jessica and Shana have always been Erika’s biggest cheerleaders and confidants. Of all the things they have in common one of them is their enjoyment of the Friends tv show, which inspired this photo shoot idea.
Erika’s confession: She likes Friends but Jessica and Shana LOVE Friends. She is not as much a fanatic as them! GASP!
Despite the difference on the like-love spectrum for the show, Erika would do anything for them!
Thanks again for trusting me to take these very special photos for you. I had a blast and I loved seeing the big smiles on your faces that just came naturally!
