I never posted one of my favorite photos I've ever taken. I took it at a birthday party a few years ago for one of the kindest and most talented people I know.
I didn't know who was on the guest list - All I remember is Jackie tapping me on the shoulder and saying, "You'll probably want to get this," and me turning around to be face-to-face with Beyoncé and Jay-Z. I couldn't believe she was as beautiful in person as she is on TV (and so nice!) After speeches and cake-cutting, people went to the dance floor. "Dirt Off Your Shoulders" started playing and Pharrell (with one of his amazing hats) joined in, with Bey and Jay looking on.
I snapped this photo standing over his shoulder, and in that moment, I was so grateful to do what I do and be able to experience these moments.
So here it is. One of my favorite photos I ever had the pleasure of taking.
Thanks for reading, for supporting me, for being my friend. This city can be really soul-crushing; I think of y'all, and of moments like this one, when I feel hopeless. ❤️
