Creating portraits with someone is such an interesting process. You get together and throw concepts around that suit both of you. The final images should represent the person in a beautiful light. Showing them when they're enjoying themselves and relaxed. Showing them when they feel confident in front of the camera or when they don't even notice it.
I love the idea of my clients looking back and being really happy to remember themselves in that moment.
Tristin and I had a blast shooting in the river. It was a hot evening and the water was the perfect temperature, although she could have done without the slimy rocks under her toes.
We'd be laughing and joking one minute then get into photo-mode the next and end up with a very serious image. I did manage to catch her cracking a smile a few times though.
A personal goal of mine was to capture movement with her dress(es) as the breeze blew by.
We found a little alcove to take some final shots before the sun set. They were final shots because she was about to be soaking wet too! It's always fun to stretch boundaries and get creative with portraits. No rules.
Thank you Tristin for having fun with me in the river and for just being yourself in these photos.
