Caroline Hoop Dancing by Lexington Photographer Cassie Lopez
I’ve been friends with Caroline since we were 14 years old. We spent our time together texting boys on my cell phone, taking film photos of each other walking on railroad tracks, learning and singing harmonies to our favorite songs, and just supporting each other and being friends through whatever. Our lives are different now but we are still the same weirdo goofballs as always, and she is still the easiest person to photograph! In the last year or so Caroline discovered hooping and I finally got to take some photos on a cloudy day, in the wondrous part of the country where West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia all converge.
