I think it’s pretty normal to be nervous before a photoshoot. In fact, I’ve become pretty used to the feeling and adrenaline it gives me once things get rolling. I have to admit though, I was a little extra nervous this time around when I had the pleasure of photographing fellow photographer Melanie and her sweet little family. Nerves soon turned into chasing beautiful light in meadows of Lupin, and walking barefoot through our local Vernal Springs…… laughing, being silly, trading photography stories. Melanie brought along her beautiful daughter Madyline, who made sure things didn’t become too serious with non stop giggles, and Andy, Melanie’s very kind and thoughtful (and handsome) boyfriend who was such a gentleman and carried our things all over the place! It was a great afternoon, so thank you guys! I hope I’ve created some images you’ll treasure always. Enjoy!
I adore these portraits of Melanie and Madyline.
Love? Yes, I believe so.
Melanie, you are a gorgeous babe!
What? Don’t you end every good session with roller skating?
