After a photo session, I feel like I get to know people on a different level than I would through just normal conversation. I know what their genuine smiles and laughs look and sound like, when they are comfortable and when they aren’t, and how they interact with each other.
That’s one of my favorite things about photography. Not only the challenge of trying to capture that – but also really getting to know new people and families who I might not have otherwise met. I recently photographed these sweet kids – whose parents I first met when they booked a photo session shortly after I moved to Dalhart. Today, they are among my closest friends.
When I do photo sessions, I generally like to be outside, with green backgrounds and lots of beautiful sunlight near sunset. Since we have done a few photo sessions before, I decided to try a different style. We did the photo session at their home, for a more relaxed lifestyle shoot.
