I don't shoot in the city very often. Grassy fields are typically my scene which is why this was so much fun! We started at the Spanish Steps and ended at the Museum of Glass. I got to photograph this adorable couple in front of beautiful backdrops that I don't typically work with.
As you can see, we started this session off with rain falling and while that may stop some, we decided to go with it. Who doesn't love dancing in the rain with the one you love? SWOON
I can't wait for their wedding in August!
P.S. Check out their cute little pup, who I must say ADORES his humans!
If you're an artist of any kind, you know the magic that takes place when an idea you have comes to life. This..THIS..was that sweet sweet magic.
I drove by an area that I'd driven by probably a trillion times (yes, a trillion) but this time I noticed the beautiful reds and greens that winter was trying so hard to mute. Winter was unsuccessful, this tiny trail was blooming with such beautiful color from the green moss and vibrant red of the bare Arctic Fire Dogwood.
Of course the photographer in me thought, "WOW there needs to be a beautiful red head standing there." Maybe this wouldn't be everyones first thought and I assure you I stopped to admire the pure beauty of nature as it was, but let me just say I was right. You'll see why when you browse through the photos of this blog post.
I was lucky enough to get in touch with Arden, a beautiful red head. No, not just beautiful, this girl is stunning. Arden is my cousins, girlfriends, cousin?...uhhh... yeah, that's right. Anywho, she was exactly what this area needed.
Most of my own personal shoots (ones where I have full control over wardrobe and style) stem from a single item. This one was inspired by a fox hat that my Mother In Law crocheted for my youngest daughter. It was a simple concept, but getting my kids to share my excitement was no simple task at all.
Rather than planning a day for my eldest daughter to dread, I pulled them out on a whim and I'm glad I did. Not only did we catch a beautiful sunset after days of heavy rain and overcast. Also, when we left my daughter said, "That was actually kinda fun." SUCCESS!!!!! We didn't even have to argue about it.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. I love them. (the kids & the moments they let me capture)
