It has been a long day, and I’m absolutely exhausted… so I have to admit to some relief knowing I can let my photography do the talking tonight. 😉
A couple of weeks ago now, I did a shoot with an absolutely charming couple – who seemed to think I’d have a hard time capturing even one good photograph. I knew very early on that not only would I get one, I’d get dozens.
Sandra and Keith were absolutely wonderful. They were such convivial company, and they had such infectious smiles. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with them, and editing their photographs just brought it all back. Funny how that works. 😉
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of working with Sarah and Shaun, and thanks to this Eustachian Tube Disorder (which isn’t an ear infection at all, though I still definitely consider it an ear troll) it has taken me far longer to work through the enhancements than I’d like. Working on the computer is slow going when it feels like someone is auditioning for Stomp inside your head. 😉 But I’m powering through as best I can. And Sarah and Shaun have been so very patient. I’ve said it before, and I know I’ll say it again: I really do have the best clients.
I absolutely adored working with Sarah and Shaun. The fact that she loves him and that he adores her is so clear. They are totally adorable, and were so easy to work with. I found myself focusing a lot on Shaun (which is out of the ordinary for me, generally I focus on my female clients) but he is so head over heals, goofy in love, for and with Sarah that I couldn’t help myself. Of course, I made sure Sarah got a lot of focus too – she’s extremely easy to photograph. They really were a delight to work with.
So, here’s a bit of a preview, while I do my best to get through the rest of the shoot:
Sooo… I am just way too darn beat to type much… and then I realized that I had pulled some photos to share a preview last week, but never did post them. So this isn’t a preview so much (seeing how they’ve already gotten their disc) but Tracey and Brent are just too adorable for me to keep them all to myself. So here’s a postview of one of the world’s most awesome couples:
Tracey, Brent – I truly enjoyed working with you two. And thank you so much for inviting me to come shoot on your land. I’ve already made it out there once, and hope to do so again. Your hospitality is very appreciated.
I met up with Diane and Katie in one of my favourite “go to” spots. It’s unusual for a client to beat me there, but these two did… and got to watch a wedding shoot that just happened to be scheduled prior to ours. I had a lot of fun working with this adorable mother, daughter team so when Diane asked that I not hand off these edits to another photographer, I was only too happy to oblige. So, here we are. 🙂 Say hello to Katie and Diane:
Sorry for being so brief… just kinda tired today. 😉
I believe this is the third time I’ve blogged about Jen and Martin’s Sweetheart Session. To bring up one particular photo shoot three times is unheard of for me, so I believe it speaks to the impact this couple had on me. I really did love working with them. Their feelings for one another were so evident in every interaction, they made my heart glow. I truly believe theirs is a love that will last through any difficulties they may encounter – and in today’s temporary society, that’s saying a lot.
I took Jen and Martin to the East side of the University Bridge here in Saskatoon. It’s not a spot I hit very often, so it remains an adventure every time I go. We shot on the lookout platform on the South of the pedestrian walkway, under the bridge itself, and along the path that extends under the bridge and through the University Campus on the North side of the bridge. In spite of relatively grey skies, we had a lovely time and created some beautiful images in celebration of this gorgeous couple.
Charlie is a little dog with a ton of personality packed into his little frame. I had a lot of fun with him and his people – in spite of a drizzly not so nice day. So, without needlessly painting the lily, here are a few photographs:
Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m a little behind. LOL This shoot wasn’t from a couple days ago, but a couple weeks ago. So HUGE apologies to both Lauren and Adam, who have been waiting so patiently. Going to be putting nose to grindstone the next several days to get caught back up.
I had a hard time narrowing down my “to share” pile for Lauren and Adam’s shoot. They were absolutely fabulous to work with, and were up for pretty much anything I suggested. It was a great experience. It’s rare that I can throw out any idea that crosses my mind and know the couple will be all for it. Because of their willingness, we covered a ton of ground during our shoot, and got a wealth of outstanding images. And editing them was just as enjoyable.
So, without further ado, here’s a brief (though not as brief as I generally try to be with these previews) glimpse into our shoot:
…and if you look closely, you’ll see three of my personally created Aperture Presets: Peachy, Cool & Calm, and Kissing.
Danae and Cameron were absolutely adorable. I always worry about couples who take themselves too seriously. But these two have humour in spades. Being able to laugh with (and occasionally AT) one another is an awesome thing.
My favourite shot from our sweethearts shoot speaks volumes, and so too do all those which follow:
This shoot really was a treat… spontaneous and fun. Just like the couple themselves.
On Sunday afternoon I had the privilege of doing a sweethearts photo shoot out in the snow with Jaclyn and Kim. I love shooting in the snow, and though it presents its own unique challenges, I wish it was something more folk were willing to consider. So when Jaclyn suggested it (without any prompting on my part) I was thrilled.
The two of them will be receiving a disk with over 100 images on it from our hour-long session. But figured I’d share a few of my favourites here, both as a preview for them, and for me to show off. LOL I absolutely adore shooting couples in love… and a couple in love out in the snow? Awesome!
