I met Jordi when I was a freshmen in college. We lived right by each other and then became good friends. We kept in touch when I moved out of that complex, and I even photographed her wedding in Arizona. It was such a milestone for me because it was my first traveling wedding.
Shortly after her wedding, her husband asked me what camera I would recommend him buying her because she was interested in photography. After she received the camera as a christmas gift, she asked if she could tag along with me on photoshoots, just to learn how to use a camera.
Long story short, Jordi tagged along to nearly every photoshoot for six months. I taught her how to use her camera, I taught her how I pose people, and I even taught her how to edit. She is basically me in another body! That mentorship just naturally developed into us being best friends and associates.
