Our Intern Styled Shoot
The last six months having Emi and Alanna on the team has been an inspiring journey. They both gave my career new purpose and meaning, and they added so much to my life. Getting to know each of them on a personal level through different opportunities like wedding shoots and attending our annual photography conference WPPI in Las Vegas was a blessing. After all the hard work they put in learning and contributing in the office, I wanted to do something fun for their last day. We planned a styled portrait session, and Kristin, one of my past clients who is now a great friend, helped bring it all to life with her styling gifts. Her and Matt were married a couple months ago (just three weeks after me!). It was so much fun seeing them again and photographing their love alongside Alanna and Emi.
I selected a local park filled with trees and fluffy grass for a simple and ethereal feel. I asked Kristin to choose a soft and neutral color palette, and she delivered exceptionally! It’s a great feeling as a photographer (or a group of three!) when you see your models walking up looking extra pretty. Thank you for always being so coordinated and fashionable Mr. and Mrs. Farnum!
Our shoot was divided into two parts: a wine picnic and simple romance. We walked around and documented their newly wed love first and then set up a sweet little picnic in the soft green grass. For each section, Alanna and Emi had their own timed sessions with the couple to take them to an area they liked and pose them in their own style. I always started off each section to get everyone acquainted, and then I stepped aside and let them take the lead while I shot from the sides. It was so fun seeing them in control and doing their thing!
After the photo shoot we enjoyed dinner and cocktails together. It was so nice getting some quality time away from the office with these two amazing ladies, and I’m going to miss seeing them every week, but I know we are going to stay in touch! Thank you so much for being a part of our day, Kristin and Matt. You’re always a blessing to photograph.
