Did a photo shoot in a gale this weekend. Before and during it I may have thought I was crazy, but I actually love a lot of the resulting images. Here’s preview!
Yesterday I posted Part 1 of a photo shoot I did with my beautiful cousin Kelsea a few weeks ago. Today, as I was looking back over the inaugural posts on this blog and thinking about posting Part 2, I was struck by one thing in particular. I am really lucky to have the friends and family that I do. Take Kelsea, for example. She is lovely, kind, fun, and she is always willing to revert to childhood for an afternoon to play dress-up and run around our old stomping ground with me. She also wears the hell out of an oversized plaid jacket. So, without any more delay, here is Part 2!
The farm animals were clearly very confused about what was happening. Frankly, I can’t blame them.
In case you missed it, be sure to check out Part 1 of this post here!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Mine was pretty great, and spending all that much-needed time with my family reminded me of some pictures I took of my mom this summer. It all started when she needed a business head shot and asked me if I would take one for her. Now…as my friends can probably attest, this was a dangerous idea. I have been known to try to coerce nearly everyone I know into modeling for me at one point or another. Needless to say, I basically bullied my mother into an hour long portrait session. Here are some of the results.
Did I also mention that my mother is gorgeous? For real. Just look at how stunning she is.
And no portraits would be complete without a picture gazing forlornly out a barn window…
I think by the end she may even have been enjoying herself a little…
But thank you, Mom for allowing your daughter to follow you around with her camera for a little while. I hope when you look at these pictures you see yourself the way I see you. You are beautiful, kind, funny, smart, and so many other things, and I hope I can be half as amazing as you are one day.
