I just love it when clients become friends or when friends become clients. Photography is about relationships and trust. I love when my clients know and trust me to capture not only what they look like, but more importantly their special bonds and the true essence of them as individuals. And for me, a custom portrait session is also about the entire experience of capturing and creating timeless images, from the consultation all the way to delivery of beautiful albums and prints.
We had a questionable day weather-wise back in October, but I was beyond excited when I started editing these images. Shane is absolutely stunning and we had a blast with her mom and sister tagging along. I love being able to photograph on location at places that hold special meaning to my clients. In fact, during her gallery viewing and ordering session, Shane said these images just remind her of home and she loves that. I hope whenever she looks back at her senior portraits she is always reminded of home.
It was a little overcast, which I don't mind photographing in. But then, toward the end of the session, the clouds parted at the horizon and we would blessed with an amazing sunset!
Good luck with all you do this year Shane! I hope you have an awesome senior year. Don't let it go by too fast though. :0) And if you decide to go purple, we'll be excited to welcome you to the Wildcat family!! Don't forget, if this post receives 10 or more comments, I will gift a 5X7 to Shane and her family.
