I have been telling my long-time friend Elyse for sometime now that she should do a photo session with my husband and I. She absolutely hates having her picture taken but I kept insisting that she went to the wrong people and that we would make it fun and relaxing for her. FINALLY I got her to agree to come over and do this photo shoot. I cannot even begin to tell you how much fun we had doing it. Jon and I told her to bring a couple of outfits and to just have fun. As usual we got each other laughing extremely hard which made for awesome pictures. After completing the photo session her and I sat and went through the pictures together. We were both blown away as to how good they turned out. I was so excited for her that she finally had an extremely memorable experience with us and we definitely can’t wait to do it again in the future:)
Our main goal for our clients is to not look overly posed and stiff, but as natural as possible. She most certainly nailed it! I’m so proud of her. We all have a natural beauty in our personalities and my husband tries to make our clients as relaxed as possible so that it can shine in their photos. Elyse may not realize it but she really is a natural.
I set out last night with family in tow hoping to catch an amazing sunset over Red Mountain from one of my favorite spots. It’s a freeway overpass that dead ends so there is zero traffic and has a great view of Red Mountain and Fountain Hills. Since the sunset wasn’t what I had hoped I grabbed my daughter who graciously posed from me. Altho I didn’t get the shot I intended I’m happier with what I walked away with.
