07 Feb Cousin Day #2
This one didn’t go as planned. But sometimes that’s okay, I’m learning.
Two days before our second cousin day, I was told that two of my friends passed away in a tragic car accident. They were driving home from a gig that I had booked and were hit by another driver who had entered the freeway headed in the wrong direction. Sad; unfair; stupid; untimely. Aiden and Ainsley Hubbard were young, talented musicians with literally hundreds of friends.
I made it to the restaurant where we’d planned to meet for Cousin Day #2; I ordered a mimosa and food, and we ended up just sitting at the table, talking rather than shooting. Which, as cousin Stacy said, was totally fine, because it all worked out: we obviously needed to talk more than we needed to shoot. I really appreciated that.
The three of us made lists and some plans to continue Cousin Day into 2017 in order to explore more of what Los Angeles has to offer. Tomorrow we will meet for Cousin Day #3, and we have a trip planned for the end of May to make the first ever Cousin Weekend happen in Seattle! I honestly can’t wait. (Especially since Stacy is from Seattle, and knows all of the best spots.)
Stay tuned! There are a lot more photographs to come….
Edit: Cousin Day #3 was rained out and postponed. Living in LA, I never thought I’d have to say that.
