This is the second set of pictures from earlier this year. This session was actually from the beginning of March where we really lucked into some mild weather for this laid back engagement session. This session was a departure from what I'm used to for most photo shoots, but I think we all really enjoyed it since it is an honest reflection of this couple and their easy going, fun attitude. It was great having a little bit of a break from what I'm what I'm normally used to photo sessions.
This year, I've done a good job of keeping up with my editing work, but at the same time had a little bit of a rough go with posting my latest work in a timely manner. I can't believe this session happened all the way back in the middle of February. The day before this shoot was actually the day when I had ruined my old camera by falling into the lake during my morning photo adventure. As a result, the day leading up to this shoot was stressful since I didn't have much time to figure out my camera situation. Luckily, everything turned out alright thanks in part to Zoha for picking a great location and having quite a few ideas of poses for this photo session.
On Saturday, I kept pace with having a portrait session a week with an outdoor photo session with my parents. Since it was my parents' anniversary weekend, they decided to have a photo session to celebrate. While the weather wasn't quite as good as we expected, we still had a good photo session over at the harbor.
On the first Saturday of 2018, I had my first photo session of the new year as Bhargavi and her husband visited my studio. I'm hoping that this is first of many portrait sessions that I have this year. In fact, one of my resolutions for this year is to have at least one portrait session per week. I haven't quite settled on who I will be photographing this week, but I surely have some ideas for people to contact.
My photo session with Steven and Yvonne came together very quickly last week. Steven contacted with me just before Thanksgiving to see if I was available to shoot over the weekend while the weather was nice. Luckily for both parties, we managed to find time on Sunday to take advantage of the beautiful weather and have a portrait session.
There were definitely times when I thought that this photo session would never happen, but it finally all came together in early September. It was a few years ago when my good friends, Mario and Teresa, first talked about having a photo session with me. While I was initially optimistic, over time talk of having this photo session seemed to quiet down and disappear. Then this past summer, I was caught off guard when Teresa told me that she was interested in having a photo session. While we may have put this off for quite a while, I was happy that we managed to get this photo session. In fact, this photo shoot was just a few days before their daughter, Ely, was born.
