Kat is such a beautiful person, inside and out. I loved this opportunity to give her some new modeling headshots. We did these in a local studio with a simple, dark background.
The thing about photos is that they don’t say a lot about the person’s soul. Their inner being. Because although this girl is beautiful on the outside, her soul is amazing. Although this started out being a hike with a friend, I have a thing for photographing redheads. So I brought an epic skirt and made her run around in the foothills at sunset in it. The varied scenery had so much to offer, and the gentle undulations of the hills are a fashion photographer’s dream.
I was discouraged after this shoot because I couldn’t get the husband to smile for the camera. Reluctantly, I started going through the edits. Then, I stopped. Wait a second. He had smiled. He just never smiled at the camera. He was always smiling when he gazed at his wife, though. His wife of 52 years.
So, I was getting the photography itch one day. The maternity session in the afternoon went amazing, and I decided to make the drive out and see the Bruneau Sand Dunes (after having lived in Idaho all my life but never having seen them). And by “see” I mean “photograph.”
