Kelly’s Portrait Session!

Here is Kelly. She is one of my old Brides ( not old by age!). Kelly and I met when she was getting married in 2007 and looking for a wedding photographer. I ended up booking with her, and after shooting her wedding, her and I gradually and naturally just cliqued and became friends. This happens at times with my business because I only take on so many weddings a year, and the fact that photographing weddings really requires me to get more personable with my clients, more of a friendship level. The fact that getting personable is one of my favorite parts about my job is just a bonus!

So I met kelly and we became friends! We discuss things like having man-hands, and telling each other the other really does not have man hands! We go to wine tastings (I experienced my first with Kelly by my side!), and we go thrift store shopping, one of my favorite past times, finding something with character, a story, and a bargain! Kelly is like that to me! I got a 2-for-1 deal with her! I got a cool client and an awesome, down to earth, fun and honest friend! I consider myself a lucky lady! ;o) She is the treasure found amongst the dusty shelves of a vintage store. She is worth more than what the price tag reveals!

So here she is…

We walked down to the creek and got in the extremely icey-cold water to shoot these. Hence the wader-boots we purchased before the shoot! Thank the Heavens for those! kelly-191-of-237-copy

Okay…so Kelly nearly fell through the ice a couple times when I asked her give me a big jump in the creek. Ooooooopsie! I would totally have gone in after her! (It was only a foot deep)kelly-227-of-237-copy1

HOT…so pretty!kelly-copy

So Kelly and I have decided (well more like I decided and Kelly has no choice but to agree with me!) that we are going to do a 4  part series…Winter, Spring, Summer, and then of course, my favorite season, Fall. And then perhaps I will put together a book of the final completed series. I am so excited to see what I come up with in all the different seasons using the same subject (kelly ;o)

Happy Thursday!
