Michelle, Stephen and I go wayyy back. It was our first week of college and fate would have it that we were all placed in the same photography lab. Each of us were new to the area, and freshmen in college. Our first class assignment required everyone to work with a partner; Michelle and I smiled at each other, agreeing to work together. We quickly discovered our small town similarities, and made instant friends. Stephen watched from a distance but was quick to make our acquaintance; within a few weeks the three of us were inseparable during lab!
Throughout the semester I learned more about Michelle’s love of fashion and before long I discovered Stephen’s adoration for Michelle. Their mutual crushes continued to grow and I soon became the third wheel! :) It has been almost 4 years since I first met Michelle and Stephen, but they still smile, flirt and laugh with each other like the first day they met!
In some sessions great photos just come easy. All elements come together in a near effortless manner and BAM your capturing one great frame after another. I believe trust is the foundation of any good relationship- this includes your photographer. Since I had Michelle and Stephen’s trust, our sessions focus was on having a good time and that always produces the best results!
300+ frames later and I’m still editing down my final selection!
Okay, how cute is Michelles skirt!?! It’s clear this FDIM (Fashion Institute of Design Merchandising) student is in the right place!
Clothing changes are not always an option, but I love working in areas that allow for it. It really brings a nice variation to a session with a different look or color scheme!
