Alex and his mom Karen are the sweetest people! They picked me up for the shoot since they live pretty close to me. I am starting to really like riding with clients to their sessions because it gives me the opportunity to get to know them before we start :) Alex was such an easy going guy and handled my creative flow very well! I try to have a plan but once I get on site ideas just start flooding in and we will be headed one direction and I'll say "Oh Wait! Let's try this!" We had been watching the weather all week up to a few hours before the shoot was supposed to take place. The clouds looked like they could burst at any moment! We had a few sprinkles to start and ended up getting completely rained out about an hour later but we made the best of it. The middle picture was taken when Karen ran to get the car while we waited in an alcove that housed the creepiest, broke down, ice cream truck ever! While I was taking that picture I told Alex he better tell me if somebody comes out of that truck while my back is to it!!
What a fun and down to earth girl! She was awesome to work with and was totally willing to drive me around for her shoot when at the last minute I found out my husband's car wouldn't be out of the shop like we thought. Thanks again Madolyn!!! We had so much fun exploring Lima and discovering some interesting characters along the way :)
This girl is a PRO! Every click of my camera she would give me a different expression or glance away from the camera ( I LOVE glancing off camera images <3) We got to include her boyfriend Tyler for the last 1/2 hour of the shoot. These two are adorable together and I had a blast working with them. I also learned that I sound like a creeper when shooting: " OH yaaaa... Love it... perfect..." I kind of knew already, but Tyler couldn't help but laugh at me lol :)
