Jennifer has the most amazing smile (and personality, and talent, and natural beauty). A big, gorgeous, natural smile. Jai has the most amazing talent. I was captivated watching her work her do Jennifer’s H&MU. I will have some wonderful behind the scenes photos to share when I get a few extra moments. Both such sweet, wonderful, and talented women. This shoot sort of fell into my lap (for which, I am SO grateful) and was organized by Alan D. Charles who wasn’t able to make it in the end; a very important opportunity to spend some time with family came up, and we all agreed he should take it.
My main camera went down days before this shoot. Although at the time it came out, my (back up) camera was the next best thing on the market, I’ve gotten quite used to my 50D and know it like the back of my hand. My back up rig is 2 versions older so for my last few shoots, I feel like I’ve been shooting with a bit of a gimp. I’m slowly getting the hang of my 30D, it’s just 2 versions older, it’s slower, the controls are a little different, and a few of my favorite features are missing… all that said, I’ve been very grateful to have my back up camera, and I feel like I’ve been able to make things happen, regardless! Having one camera down makes me want to get a second back up when I’m able.
Back to our shoot; I can’t say enough good about what it’s like working with talented, professional, passionate people who share a common interest and style with me. I really can’t say enough good about my experience working with both Jennifer and Jai! I also need to give a shout out and big thank you to Vintique Boutique for providing the last two outfits in this set!
Here are our favorite shots from the day!
