Tessie is one of my best friends and muses and she moved to Virginia Beach the day after I made these photographs to live with her Aunt, Uncle and cousin Nic. They own a photo studio out there and her parents told her that if she wanted to still go, now was the time to do so; so she packed up the essentials and moved away. I selfishly didn’t want her to move, but I know how important it is to leave your hometown for a bit because if you don’t, there’s no progression.
Things are looking up for the both of us. We just need to keep our heads above the water.
