I love one-on-one portrait shoots! There is just something about being alone with your subject, exploring a new area and learning about that person in a way that I think wouldn’t normally be possible. My afternoon with Kelley was no exception!
When I first got Kelley’s email asking me to take photographs for her website, I was BEYOND flattered! We both went to the School of Photography at OCC a few years back and I always admired Kelley. I got to know her well through many classes and I was always impressed by how articulate she was. She could breakdown, explain and compare any piece of art. She is a true art lover and it was apparent from the first class!
While brainstorming for locations Kelley suggested Ladera Ranch because she considers it her hometown, and after spending the afternoon there, I’m ready to move! ;) Not only did we have a gorgeous day, but it was Kelley’s birthday and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with a portrait shoot! Here are a few of my favorite frames and be sure to leave Kelley some comment love!
Kelley is one of those people that just radiates laughter and love! She is so full of life and a joy to be around!!
During our shoot Kelley gave me one of the best compliments ever, she described my work as a “Sunday afternoon and lemonade!” Not the typical description I’m used to hearing, but I am thrilled that anyone would use those words to think of my work… ah, just makes me smile thinking about it!! Thanks Kelley!!
The late afternoon light was amazing, I was seriously in heaven!!!
Love this shot!
This beautiful pepper tree made for an awesome background, and some of my favorite shots!!
Kelley, I had a fantastic afternoon with you photographing, catching up and watching the sunset! I cannot wait to see where your business takes you and I know great things are ahead! To see Kelley’s awesome photography check out her website!
