I am so excited to show you guys this session. It’s another old one (like 3 years old!), but it is on my top 10 favorite list for a few reasons. Firstly, it’s my sister. I come from a big huge family of 8 children, but this is my baby sister, so she holds a special place in my heart. Meghann is now 14 and starting high school, but she was just a little tweeny thing when we did this session. It was a cool windy evening and the old house we shot at couldn’t have fit the session any better. Meghann is super photogenic and the only one of us kids who scored those blue eyes. To say I enjoy shooting her would be a gross understatement. She’s definitely a favorite subject.
I love when I get an opportunity to shoot a session that is “outside the box” like this one. Smiling toddlers are pretty awesome, but a moody etherial field makes for a happy photog. Often clients will come to me with an idea of vision they have for their session and it’s always a joy to help them actualize their dreams and to make a really special memory. I have done sessions with all kinds of random props and at obscure locales. This one was void in the prop department, but a site like this one is a prop, in and of itself. I have used this spot a handful of times for family sessions, maternity, and even to shoot a band, but this day just felt like it was exactly what the house was built for (yes, mom, i ended that sentence with a preposition).
