Creative Edition: Harsh Light & Fruit

Harsh light is not scary or ugly as that’s a wildly popular opinion for photographers and their clients. Instead, that mid day light can be a gateway to creativity and expression, working with the most beautiful element—light.

Jillian and I really enjoyed these portraits, exploring a Dallas park under a deep blue October sky and bright sun.

We had been wanting to do a fruit-themed shoot for months now.

We both loved the idea because not only is fruit an aphrodisiac but it’s also earthy, colorful, and expressive with its many textures and shapes.

Jillian was the perfect model for this harsh sunlight because she rocked that mid-day glare in her eyes so beautifully. Anyone that can squint at a camera and still look stellar is an excellent subject haha.

This shoot felt so connected to roots and the earth. I love a natural element in a shoot.

Couples Edition: Sunrise Lake Session

Watch the sun rise over a lake in the middle of nature with your boo….

So romantic!

You can have a morning like that with me AND get photos! A sunrise lake session is in the books and I want more of these.

I had so much fun on this lake session with Gwen and Jesse! There was a lot of laughing, dancing, and rock skipping. They’re the type of couple that is so relaxed with each other and comfortable in a shoot that it felt like we met up just to hang out.

I should have brought breakfast and it could have been an official date with me as third wheel, which I already advocate for on all shoots anyway haha.
