We’re going to rewind a little bit today, and I’m going to show you the first session I ever did with a real live couple. Everyone, please meet Ryan & Amanda. I am honored to say that they have been friends of mine and Adam’s for a very long time, and were sweet enough to let me take their maternity photos while they were in Wisconsin last fall.
Ryan and Amanda moved down to Texas a few years ago. Needless to say, I was slightly worried about what the Wisconsin weather would have in store for them. It was a little chilly, but they handled it like champs and were up for an adventure. I was so worried about asking poor Amanda to walk all over the property, especially since it was a Sunday. It was a crazy busy place! But she was a trooper and willing to do whatever it took.
I have to admit, I have learned a TON about light, locations, layout, etc. and improved my skills tremendously since taking these photos. But even though the lighting isn’t ideal, composition isn’t there, and my editing style wasn’t even developed yet, I’m still proud of them and so happy that I was able to give these two some photos to remember from this amazing time in their lives. Because that’s really what it’s about – creating memories that last a lifetime.
Jeremiah Jeffrey was born in December, and he is the absolute cutest thing! Congratulations, again, you guys. I cannot wait to meet your sweet little boy!
