My first bridal portraits many years ago were of two sisters. It’s been a long time since I’ve gotten the opportunity to photograph two “grown-up” sisters, so it was really fun to work with Victoria and Annalee recently! (Sidenote, those 2 sisters in the bridal portraits are good friends with V&A’s cousin. Everything comes full-circle….) They brought a variety of great outfits–helloooo, I love clothes–and were totally willing to take photos in some unusual places (like a grungy loading dock, ha!). I love all the bright colors we got, and good grief they both have the most beautiful eyes. See for yourself…
Victoria is starting her sophomore year of college…
Annalee is a senior in high school this year. Woohooo!
Class of ’10
I’m loving these bright colors!
OK. The Field.
I’ve spent many an evening grilling out and listening to Pearl Jam and outlaw country on my friend Kevin’s back patio, which overlooks this great field. Every time I’m hanging out I think “Man, I wanna shoot someone’s portraits out there!” The sun sets perfectly over the grasses, and it’s so beautiful and glowy. On the afternoon of Victoria and Annalee’s session, however, we had storm clouds instead of golden sunlight! We pulled up to thunder and lightning, but the prayers I sent up on the drive over worked…the storm rolled by in the (not-so-distant) distance, and we had a crazy backdrop of dark grayish-blue clouds.
LOVE this whole series, and I simply could not pick which ones for you to see!! (And I love their dresses!! Makes me want to go shopping. :-))
So I have a thing lately for funky chairs. This one came from Goodwill and was $1. I almost never carry cash, though, so I had to dig around and pay for it with change. There was another $1 chair that I wanted, but I didn’t have anymore change. True story. *Sigh.* Anyway, Victoria made the chair look like a million bucks!
Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong here (I’m not), but Annalee’s eyes are completely awesome!
OK, so here is the cute factor. I’m sure V & A are happy their hairstyles have changed since they were little girls, but I think this is adorable!!
Ladies, I had a great time with you! Thanks for completely rocking this shoot!
