Today’s shoot was SO MUCH FUN! I met Kimmi through social media, although she did graduate from my college, and I’ve been wanting to photograph her for such a long time now. When I slid into her DMs and asked if she’d be willing to model for me for a little bit in Cleveland, she asked if her boyfriend could come along and it ended up being such a fun shoot. Brad and Kimmi were such naturals in front of the camera, constantly assembling themselves into beautiful poses without any real direction, besides my telling Brad to “attack her with a hug,” which went over pretty well actually :)
Photography has such a beautiful way of forming bonds between people, which is one of the reasons I love it so much. Between meeting them 30 minutes before the beginning of our shoot to saying goodbye at the end of the session, we developed an understanding of each other that is more valuable than any amount of photos ever will be. I’m so excited about these photos and the people in them!
