I first met Vanessa in 2015 when she modeled for a styled shoot. Since then, I’ve photographed her lovely family and more recently, I got to do a branding shoot at The Elm House in Gilbert for her new business, Wander Coffee! She asked me what kind of coffee I liked and my answer was “Super sweet with lots of milk.” And wouldn’t you know, she concocted the BEST iced coffee on the planet! I’m so excited to see where her venture leads because the idea of a pop up coffee shop at events just makes me want to toss confetti all over the place!
Hey. Do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one of you. And there will never be another.
