It has been a bit since I’ve posted, but I have been busy catching up with everything on my plate. And what a better couple to jump back in with than Heather and Chad! What a cool couple! I felt like such a nerd around them, but Heather and Chad were just really effortlessly cool. It could have been the ample amount of tattoos that they were each sporting, or it could have been that they were really easy to be around and really easy to photograph and very much in love. (Forgive the overabundance of images, there were just so many that I wanted to share.)
You may have noticed the strange name that I used in the title of this post – Toad. He is my kid brother (I used to call him my little brother but he’s now 6’1″, dwarfing the rest of the family). His God-given name is Aaron, but for almost his entire life Toad is all I have ever called him. Aaron got this nickname when he was a tiny baby; christened “toad” by our dad because of the way he used to bounce around. Anyhow, more to the point, Toad and Kamryn have been together for about three years. In those three years, I have seen a wonderful relationship blossom out of these two young people. And it took almost no time for us to count Kamryn as part of our family. They are a handsome couple, very in love and easy to photograph. *note the hilarious little dog – Bella. She is goofy and absolutely ridiculous!
I had the opportunity to work with this French beauty, Lana, from Major Models. She needed some new images and I was happy to oblige.
Sometimes you just need to go outside with your husband and take pictures of the snow. So I did, two weeks ago.
I LOVED THIS SHOOT! Absolutely, head over heels in love, so much so that I over-indulged on the number of pictures. I couldn’t decide which ones were my favorite. Please just bear with me while I gush. The weather was ideal – it was snowy. It doesn’t sound perfect but snow pictures are some of my favorite! Our poor model though. I asked Kaitlyn, this 5’11″ size 2 young lady, to stand in 8°F weather, with wind and snow, while I composed each shot. She never complained or whined or asked to stop. I gave her the option of not finishing because she was visibly tortured by the cold, but she never quit. If you are reading this, then go ahead and give Kaitlyn a round of applause. She deserves it. The dress and accessories were so much more than I expected. They were unique and elegant and beautiful. And can we just talk for a second about her braided crown of hair? Hello gorgeous! Ok ok ok, enough reading and more looking!
