We were lucky enough to spend an afternoon with BJ Williamson, of Williamson and Co., drinking margaritas and watching him shape my new 9’2” longboard. A little peek into the beginning stages of shaping a surfboard.
Longboarding parking garages is one of my favorite ways to get into trouble in Houston. The feeling of carving down floor after floor of open concrete is almost like the rush of catching a nice wave, except you know the tide is always right (after 10:00, when the cars have left at least). One of my favorite parts of longboarding is the level of ‘hoodlum’ involved. We sneak in crouched down, run to the nearest stairwell, and quietly make our way up. Somehow I always end up laughing or talking which lead to stearn looks from the guys. Once we make it to the top, we try to get in as many rides as possible before we rouse a ticked off security guard who spouts off threats of calling the police. For this suburban raised girl, riding by with a smile on my face just totally thrills me.
Our favorite parking garage seemed like the perfect place to start George and Amaris’ engagement session. The shoot was challenging with the lack of light but I am really happy with how these turned out. See ya here tomorrow for round two of G+A. Oh, and make sure you check out the pictures of George’s wipe out!!
Some of my very first clients, back for more!! Amy is a wonderful mother with two beautiful and funny babes. She brought along her parents and niece to join in the fun! They are so easy going and fun to be around and I always enjoy taking their photos.
