Photobombing cows. Crazy humidity. Two beautiful people in love. Adilene and Alex were absolutely sweet and stunning! You can just see how much love and laughter they bring into each others lives! Being just a small part of each couple's story and being able to document it means so much to me and I am forever grateful for the chance to do so :)
Let the record show that spontaneous sessions are the BEST! I met Libee through my mother-in-law and pretty much 30 minutes after meeting her, I asked her if she would be willing to model... as you can see by my blog, I have been so busy with moving, working, etc. I haven't been around here lately. Before the session, I ran to Goodwill in hopes of finding a romantic, flow dress (although my expectations were quite low, since it is my experience that Goodwill only carries hideous 80's, puffy sleeved dresses)... Wouldn't you believe it there was!!! There it was in all it's lavender, flow glory, all mine for a little over $2!! I'd also had this beautiful, ornate gold dress I'd been holding onto for a special occasion (like a wedding I'd actually attend as a guest for). Anyway, I figured, these two dresses would be perfect for the photos I had in mind. And oh. my. goodness. were they EVER! See for yourself:
I've always found it a challenge to find a variety of settings to use for session. And by variety, I mean, I wish I lived in California and had mountains, coastlines, and deserts to choose from within reasonable distance away. Unfortunately, I am an Atlanta-based photographer, so there is a lack of deserts and coastlines to choose from in Georgia. However, I recently just discovered Arabia Mountain. Life changing. Pools of water, glorious green moss, flat plateaus of rocks... It literally reminds me so much of the landscapes that riddle California! Imagine, we have a little piece of Cali right here in Georgia! Now being an Atlanta-based photographer doesn't seem too terrible ;)
Now, onto Kesia and Alex...
Sydney was absolutely a DREAM to photograph!!! What else can I say? She has a quiet beauty and a quiet confidence that just shines! She has an incredible sense of style and came prepared with ideas and props. (Which is Step 1 to making your photographer love you, by the way.) I can't wait to see where this lovely girl goes in life! Enjoy her photos!
