Oooh, there is a light at the end of the tunnel... I am just seeing it. Its so hard getting through the queue of sessions. This season has been so full, that Im having to skip some blogging because I know how much they want their photos in time for the holidays. I hate not sharing the holiday adorableness, so I am beyond excited to finally be blogging this adorable couples engagement session.
I had met these two over coffee and we talked about a giant spectrum of things from the wedding plans to their families to the sweet pup champ. I just loved getting to know them then, and even more during the session. We went back and forth over location ideas, and I know how hard it is to choose the perfect spot. I do know. I put my family in front of the camera, and the thought process of when where what, is definitely overwhelming. I remind myself and my clients to start by finding genres of places that you know would allow you to be comfortable and yourselves. Right now, I couldnt image taking my four girls that are under the age of 9 any where near downtown. I would be so afraid of one of my girls running in the street, or putting their hand prints all over a pretty store front. So, right now, that wouldn't be the best for us. Or, for my couples that are a little introverted and camera shy, having people everywhere might not help you relax or come out of your shell. But, then walking through wispy grass when you want to be wearing high heels might not be the right fit either. So, you start with a genre. Then start narrowing down to a type of space that can allow for an activity or a space that helps accentuate things you love. Going for walks, taking a picnic, apple picking, river walking, eating ice cream, having a cup of coffee, playing the banjo, or going for a swim. Because if you are in your element, doing the things you love, I promise you'll forget about the camera, and we will see the real you. Which is the ultimate goal. So, I know these two they chose a beautiful spot with some rustic features, some elements of nature and the season, a perfect place for them to take their pup for a walk, and lovely spot for a picnic. I think it was totally them.
Kyle and Andrew, just loved our time together! Thank you so much for a fun afternoon and can't wait to the wedding in March!!
