I’m so excited to post the preview for this beautiful lady! Obviously she’s drop-dead gorgeous, but she’s also super cool. She’s a pilot, and when we met for her pre-consultation the other day, she asked me if I would mind if we could do her session at the Hooks Airport with her plane. Um, yes, please!! Here’s a pretty one at the park before we headed out to the airport.
So, I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but about a lifetime ago, I was a captain in the Air Force. And if I had been a single gal, un-betrothed to an Army dude, I would have been a pilot. The closest I got was soloing in the glider program at the Air Force Academy. When I was in grad school, I did some research on the history of women in the Air Force and studied the women of the WASP: Women Airforce Service Pilots.
From http://www.wingsacrossamerica.us/wasp/index.htm: During World War II, a select group of young women pilots became pioneers, heroes, and role models…They were the Women Airforce Service Pilots, WASP, the first women in history trained to fly American military aircraft.
And this is Fifinella–the WASP mascot, drawn by Walt Disney. In the middle of grad school, I went down to NYC and got a little tattoo of her on my rump. :)
Anyway, I totally geeked out about this shoot and probably had more fun than this little lady did. I love, love, love that we got her all glammed up with hair and makeup and a pretty dress, and put on her aviators and headset in front of her plane. What a cool chick.Some sun flare, some cool planes, and a pretty lady. Now that’s how you spend a Saturday.
One more, because she’s just too pretty not to share.
Sweet girl, I hope you had a blast, because I sure did! You are such a sweetheart and all-around fabulous lady. I’ll have the rest ready soon.
