This session was doubly, no I'll say triple special for me in so many ways. Mainly because the bride-to-be you see here is my dear friend, Kayla. Kayla has been my boss, my confidant, someone who would laugh at all my quirky (and bad) jokes, AND my wedding planner (who helped give me my dream wedding by the way)!! I still remember so vividly the exciting (sometimes chaotic) days spent serving coffee and running the little Coffee Oasis cafe, dreaming about all of the Pinterest ideas we could think of, sharing dating advice back and forth, laughing about nonsense or sometimes hilarious things her daughter Rooney said and did the night before. Now here we are, both living the marriage season together! Wow. God has blessed us so richly, friend!
And what an incredible shoot this was! The typical northwest weather surrounding us on this beautiful beach was gorgeous on that strangely mild fall morning. The dark clouds were definitely looming over our heads as I spent time capturing the love of these two...thankfully the rain held out most of our time there. During the last chunk of the session though, it did begin to drizzle, then pour, but that didn't stop us from carrying out the fun of our adventure. And the final product...sheer perfection! I have never been happier with engagement photos in all my years as a photographer. And I don't think I've ever captured two people happier to be in love! Thank you so much for trusting me to capture this beautiful time in your lives Kayla and Andrew, it was definitely a session to remember. Congratulations!!!
If you are a High School Senior, and you are a guy, I promise you will enjoy having your senior pictures taken! Just because of the stereotype that 'guys don't like pictures' doesn't mean you won't enjoy your experience! It can be so daunting as you imagine what the shoot will be like over and over in your head, apprehensive about being on the spot and you just know you will feel a little anxiety and insecurity upon arriving...Questions might be begrudgingly racing through your mind...Will I pull this off? Will I look/feel ridiculous? You mean I have to 'play dress up' and do this for mom for a whole hour? Believe me, I know the feeling. It's just awkward, so awkward! But what if I told you CAN discover how much fun posing in front of the camera can be and you CAN feel like a rock star doing it! Because the moment you step foot on location of your Senior portrait session with me, I make it a priority to be that photographer who genuinely cares about this time in your life. It's a beautiful, messy, fleeting experience, a bitter sweet season in your life that I want to capture on point in your images. I am that photographer that will let you step back and be you, that trusted friend who gives you the freedom to be silly, to be shy, to be serious! Because seriously guys, who wants to look and feel like they're smiling like Cheshire Cat or like grandma you caught off guard with her kodak wind-up? So, c'mon Seniors! Let me show you how FUN and easy this can be!
