She’s not only one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met, but one of the prettiest. I’ve had to spend a bit of last night and this morning pouring over this image. And I have to say, I don’t mind one bit.
My sittings with musicians are always very short. I get a few minutes with them between their sound check and their performance.
But yesterday’s sitting will likely remain one of the most salient.
After shooting about eight frames, which I was more than happy about, I said, “Gabby, thank you so much. I’m done with this part.”
Gabby said, “Oh, really? That was quick.”
“I know, right,” I said. “I don’t like to take much of your time.”
She smiled gratefully.
Then I said, “… but Jerry likes to get a shot with the talent. I’m going to go grab him and I’ll be right back.”
As I walked away, I heard her say, “Okay, I’ll sweep while I wait!”
In my mind, I couldn’t get my head around what she meant. I turned around and she had found a broom and she was pretending to sweep the floor.
I let out a boisterous laugh.
When I called out to Jerry who was finishing his camera prep for the live performance, “Wanna get a shot with Gabby?”
“Oh yeah. Thanks.”
“I told her I was going to get you and she said she would sweep while she waited,” I told him.
When we opened the door to the photo studio, there she was, sweeping.
It melted my heart. What a sweet, fun person.
