Mom + Dad's Anniversary Session

When your parents are married for 25+ years, you start to realize how special each piece of family history is. For my mom's wedding anniversary present, I photographed my family's wedding memorabilia, along with fragments of items collected along the way to the present moments. On their wedding day, my father wore a pink bowtie, which is just now coming into fashion again. He has always been a bit bashful about it. My mother wore a vintage lace dress with a bow in back, found at a local thrift. It's funny how these trends circulate throughout the years like a tornado, just as the one they saw off the balcony view on their August wedding day. Peek their gallery here to see the special moments they have curated throughout the decades of devotion. <3 

When the Photographer Becomes the Subject

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to photograph a photographer? Or on the other side of the same coin, have you ever modeled when you have only been the one behind the camera before? I decided that as a graduation gift to myself, I would pay Becca Waterloo at oolretaw.com take my picture :) I wanted to see what it would be like to be the client, so that I can improve my own client experience. The nerves were real! I followed my own style guide, got my hair done, and put my faith into the hands of a talented professional. As I froze up and forgot some of my own posing tips, Becca made me feel comfortable by using an artistic eye, and telling me what looked good. My nerves melted away, and we started to have fun! She went above and beyond by working over our allotted time to make sure I was thrilled with my photos, and I was! Check out our session below:
