Express Road Trip 7
Sometimes, life throws you a curve ball and you have to figure out what to do and how to make the most of it. The other day, I had a photoshoot with an online store called Okilucky and the idea was to go to some cool cabins in the forest and do a Holiday shoot. That didn't quite work out the way we wanted tho, mainly because the cool cabins were unavailable and we ended up shooting outdoors. We had to be resourceful.

Although it was just one outfit to shoot and we were doing blogger team-ups, I invited my friend Luis Galicia (@bigotesdelince on Instagram) to join us and we ended up having a blast and shooting four different outfits, haha. We were true warriors and went uphill on the back of a pickup truck, where we almost died, haha, faced hunger, lack of electricity and a mad dog... We survived and  made the most out of a less than ideal situation.

This outfit is one of the four we shot (you can see a portrait of a different one on my Instagram by clicking here) and I was so happy with the results! It looks like we're on a road trip and just casually got some shots snapped. Luis is a really great photographer, a good friend and I think we see eye-to-eye in lots of things and that chemistry comes across in the photos we shoot together. Our "express road trip" ended up being really fun and we got some great shots out there (:

// A veces la vida te "agarra en curva" y tienes que encontrar una solución y aprender a sacarle todo el provecho posible. El otro día, tuve una sesión de fotos con una tienda online que se llama Okilucky y la idea era ir a unas cabañas padres en el bosque y hacer material navideño. Eso no salió tan cómo lo esperábamos, principalmente porque las cabañas padres no estaban disponibles y terminamos tomando fotos en exteriores. Tuvimos que ser ingeniosos.

Aunque sólo era un atuendo y estábamos haciendo fotos en parejas de bloggers, invité a mi amigo Luis Galicia (@bigotesdelince en Instagram) para acompañarnos y terminamos pasándola muy bien y tomando cuatro looks diferetnes, jaja. Fuimos unos guerreros y subimos la cuesta dle bosque en la parte de atrás de una camioneta pick-up, donde casi morimos, jaja, enfrentamos el hambre, la falta de electricidad y un perro loco... Sobrevivimos y le sacamos el provecho a una situación no ideal.

Este atuendo es uno de los cuatro que tomamos (puden ver un retrato de uno distinto en mi Instagram haciendo click aquí), y ¡estoy muy feliz con los resutlados! Parece que estuvimos en un viaje de carretera y nos detuvimos casualmente a tomar fotos. Luis es un gran fotógrafo, un buen amigo y creo que pensamos igual en muchas cosas de la vida, esa química se transmite en las fotos que tomamos juntos. Nuestro "viaje de carretera express" terminó siendo algo muy divertido y productivo (:
