The goat kind of kid, that is!
I just have to say, if you love your farm animals and would like to have them photographed....as long as you promise to not let them eat me, I would LOVE to come photograph them for you! Just bringing a little bit of the outdoors into your interior designing efforts. I wish I could show you the wall collection we designed from this shoot. I can't wait to see them all in print!
This is the time of year you can really see how far behind I am on blogging.
The beautiful golden color is gone from the trees and I miss it so much! The time frames of the seasons sometimes seem so unfair. We have winter...dead-ness...for, like ever. Then Spring comes with all it's beautiful blooms and those fade FAST, then Summer flies by in a few brief months, then Fall....fall is like the biggest tease of them all. All those magnificent colors for 2 weeks out of 52?!!? Gah. Oh well, I guess it's a good way to go out with a bang before the death of winter comes. Sorry...that was a smidge dramatic.
Back to the Bedards...This family is a fave. They are like the brilliance of fall all year around. I have so loved working with them since they moved to the area. Their kids are beautiful, they are beautiful, their extended family is beautiful. How can a photographer miss? They make me look good. For that, I'm grateful.
A couple of years ago, I photographed this beautiful spirit-----> (Miss Hannah).
This year, her brother will be graduating. When we were chatting about what we wanted to do for Reed's senior pictures, a sport theme was an obvious choice. He has played football, baseball and basketball since he was little. As we continued to dig a little deeper, they shared with me that they have (almost) every jersey, hat, glove, cleats, tennis shoes and trophies from his entire childhood career. I said, "bring em". :)
Easy for me to say...his poor mom, aunt and sister worked their fingers to the bone to make what became the most colorful and significant backdrop I have ever photographed a high school senior against. I love it. Love the way the whole session turned out.
Onward and upward, Mr. Reed.
......and easy on the eyes. :) Isn't she lovely?
When she arrived for her session, it started raining....if you look really close in the third image down, you can see it.
We aren't sugar...we marched on.
Her mom (who is ridiculously creative and fun) brought this crazy awesome cow hide bench for us to use. So we literally walked a block, jumped in the car, drove a few blocks, unloaded the bench, walked some more, loaded it back up and did lots of stopping and going until we finished up.
I love the variety a session like this has to offer. Plus it's just fun to move around when you like to change scenery.
