Full disclosure – I kind of hate taking photos in general and especially after a few days of stuffing myself with great food (which always happens at my granny’s). If it were for me I would probably skip the photo session entirely.
But then there’s Sara. She wears me off with a guilt trip about wasting our life away and how we’re only young and camera ready once, so I eventually cave in and do whatever ridiculous thing she has in mind. This year, her vision was “spring fairy taking her pet rabbit to a walk through the woods”. Her words not mine!
In her defense, she does realize how hilarious that sounds. But being able to be ridiculous and childish is kind of great if you think about it.
You should have seen us dragging all the props necessary for the photoshot to the back of the garden. Imagine this: me in full hair in makeup with my maxi dress trailing behind, Sara with the camera, a bottle of water, a bag of makeup products and hair combs in case I would need some sort of a touch-up, we even recruited our mom to carry the rabbit in his special little house. This is a "flat rabbit", he's not into running around - he does take after me in that aspect.
