I feel that I don’t have the words to describe Andi. She is beautiful, fun, intelligent, kind and exceeded every single expectation that I had of meeting her in real life. I expected to get along great with her. I didn’t expect her to feel like a lifelong friend from the second we first hugged each other at the airport. I expected her to be even prettier in real life. I didn’t expect her to look like a freaking celebrity walking through customs with her sunglasses on. I expected her to be a very cheerful person. I didn’t expect her to be so genuinely joyful that it made me stop and think twice about my own life and how I can try to put that much positivity into the world.
She is simply one of those people that radiates light and makes everyone around her better for it. Seriously, if you don’t believe me, go check out her blog and tell me that you don’t leave that website feeling happier than when you came.
I have had such a good time having her around in Chile that Emily and I are still trying to plot out a kidnapping plan to make her stay in Chile and NEVER LEAVE US!!! MWAHAHA!
I had the honor of doing a boudoir shoot with Andi while she was here. The W in Santiago graciously sponsored the photo session with a free night’s stay for Andi and I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Rodrigo, the best makeup artist in all of Chile, all of South America and maybe even the world. I’m not exaggerating, he is that good.
On to the pictures.
Good morning, sleeping beauty.
Loving on this natural gorgeousness.
AHHH, FAVORITE EVER! To me this captures Andi exactly the way I think of her — always laughing, always having fun. She’s just stunning.
And yes, sadly for all the little boys out there reading (probably not many, last time I checked my readership was like 80% female), that’s an engagement ring on her finger. Such a cool ring! Such a giant rock!
My main reason for posting this next photo is that Seba thinks Andi is a dead ringer for Shakira in this one. I can see it!
Girl after my own heart. We share a deep and passionate love for champagne, at any hour of the day.
This is one of my other favorites from the session! No matter where I go and what I do, I always have to fulfill the need for abstract awesomeness burning inside me LOVE this shot, so, so much!!!
I’m running out of adjectives to describe Andi’s hotness so I’ll just go with, “Ummm, wow?”
And last but not least, up to The W’s rooftop pool for a few more quick photos! It has an insane view of Santiago!
Love this photo. Love The W. Love Andi. So beautiful. All around win.
