“It’s an odd thing, but anyone who disappears is said to be seen in San Francisco. It must be a delightful city and possess all the attractions of the next world.”~Oscar Wilde
What a precious little soul Scout is. It was such an enjoyable morning hanging out with Miss Scout. I have never photographed such a newborn baby. Just a week prior to the shoot she was nestled in her mother’s womb, growing and preparing for the world. The miracle in such a little human is truly remarkable. It still perplexes me every time I meet a newborn.
Where could I possibly begin with this amazing couple? From the moment I met Jean, I knew she would be an incredible bride to work with. At our first meeting, we chatted about everyday topics as we sat down to a cup of coffee. Jean and I bonded over our favorite TV shows, laughed about how having brothers makes a girl tougher, and an hour into the meeting, I noticed we hadn’t talked about the wedding once. The feeling of two people really understanding each other after just meeting is truly extraordinary, and that’s what I felt with Jean. After catching a glimpse of her kind spirit, I could only imagine how her fiance Jo must be. On the day of the shoot, Jean warned me, “We aren’t very photogenic, you’re going to have to direct us a lot.” Next thing I knew, these happened…
***Special thanks to Kaley for her editing genius. Without her I would have terrible transitions and grammar.
I first met Leigh at her grandmother’s 100th birthday. I was photographing the fabulous event celebrating the life of one lovely lady. We did a mini family shoot after, ate some cake, and called it a day! Leigh has kept up with me since then. Four years later, she wanted to show off her new little family with me. I loved getting to see little Ella for the first time since she was 2. I remember having to bribe her with a giant lolly pop and bubbles. Sweet times. I’m excited to present the Lundys with an additional little nugget.
When Kristen and I first met to discuss details about her and Hunter’s special day, one thing in particular caught my eye- her contagious, glowing smile. She met me with a smile that made me feel as if we had been old friends meeting to catch up with each other’s life. Seeing her and Hunter together and watching that smile reappear throughout the entire shoot was an incredible testimony to the love that they share. I cannot wait to photograph their New Orleans wedding in May!
