Oh my goodness, where do I start with this shoot?! Jackie is a fellow photographer and friend and when she first asked me to take their anniversary photos I thought, "Me?! You want me to take your photos?!" I was honored to say the least and so excited I couldn't stand it. From there, it was a blast planning what we were going to do and before we knew it we were planning a sunrise hike up to Rattlesnake Ridge in North Bend.
We ran around Juanita Bay Park under a stormy sky and found magical places to take photos while narrowly escaping the rain at the last minute. These two were so fun to work with and looked fantastic (even after being up all night with their adorable babe #parentgoals). I absolutely loved my time with them and can't wait for their wedding in May!
Leah & Alec definitely started with saying the classic, "I'm so sorry in advance, we're really awkward."
Now, let's get real. I think the majority of people probably feel uncomfortable in front of the camera (myself included) but lucky for you, I have a few tricks up my sleeve. My sessions are not "look here and smile!" That's awkward. Most of my "posing" starts off with looking at each other, holding hands, talking to one another and doing activities...
