I am blown away by how awesome my 2016 clients are!
Brittany and Frank are my kind of people. When we first met, Brittany and I hit it off instantly. Our initial consultation meeting lasted two hours because we have so much in common that we just couldn't stop talking to each other! Because of being on the same energy wavelength, I have found it so easy and completely rewarding to work with this couple on their wedding day!
This week I got together with a group of extremely talented local vendors to create a styled wedding portrait shoot. Our goal was to give each vendor the freedom to express their creative vision and try something new, while simultaneously creating images that could be used by all to build their portfolios and showcase their skills. It took weeks of planning and a little flexibility, but it all came together at the end!
Almost exactly one year ago I photographed Petra + Derek's wedding. When they hired me they chose a package that included an engagement session, but they didn't want to have the session. Petra was pregnant and they wanted to just focus on the wedding at that point, so I offered to let them use their session at a later point in time.
I love, love, love this little peanut, Maven! She is 3-months-old now and seriously gets cuter every time I see her. Nathan and Angela wanted to do something different than what we've done in the past, so for our fifth(!) session together we left their property for the first time and shot on location! We traveled down the road a bit to an awesome covered bridge and a new little park that is in the process of being built. This session was extra special because Maven's grandparents and great-grandmother were also with us!
When planning for Aubrey's senior portrait session, her mom let me know that she wanted some help with posing. This is a really common concern, especially for someone who is creating portraits that are intended to represent a major life event like high school graduation! You want to look your best in these portraits which are *hopefully* going to be around for a long time!
Imagine this - you have a young son who just turned a year old. You want to have professional family portraits to share with family and friends, but you have no clue what you want the theme, setting, or location to be. The situation needs to be suitable for a one-year-old so that he is safe, happy, and entertained long enough to get photos without a major meltdown happening.
