I was so excited when my brother Joe and his girlfriend Amanda agreed to do an outdoor photo shoot! I knew it was going to be a success right from the start! Joe and Amanda have been dating for a few years and I would like to tell everyone (especially my family and friends) that this was NOT an engagement shoot. (not yet??!) LOL My brother wanted me to note that.
We planned on meeting at Dodge Park to take advantage of the foliage. Well the weather had changed a bit and I had baby Jack who was bundled up sleeping in his stroller. Jack is the best assistant ever! We rolled with the changes, Joe brought his guitar and Amanda looked like a movie star! I was able to get the look I imagined plus more. They were great and such a pleasure to work with. Joe’s beautiful guitar was a perfect addition to the shoot and I cannot forget their cute dog Vinnie who couldn’t wait to get photographed as well.
All went well aside from the little injury we had when I made Amanda jump on Joe’s back (scroll down for the final shot). I should have spotted them but I mean Amanda is a tiny thing so I didn’t think it would be a problem. Sorry Joey! I hope your neck is feeling better.
I hope everyone enjoys taking a look at some of my favorite shots from the shoot.
