Ally + Maddie

 

I'm going to start out by saying that I like to shoot in quiet, more secluded environments where both my clients and I can feel comfortable to use the entire space, restricted only by time and light. So when I met Ally and Maddie at this particular bluebonnet patch off the side of a freeway at 6:30 pm, I was astonished to see maybe over 70 other groups of families, couples and photographers trying to shoot on top of each other among the flowers. Apparently that's just bluebonnet season in Texas, haha! I brought the girls to a spot out further in the sun than where most were shooting and trusted that the tons of tiny figures in the background that weren't blurred out by my depth of field could be photoshopped out. The light was just so beautiful and these two sisters were amazing to work with! 

Ally had been my coworker at a former job, and I was thrilled when she contacted me about a shoot for her and her sister (who is a senior in high school). Can I just take a second to say that working with seniors is kind of more like working with actual models? When did high schoolers get so damn stylish? Like I still had side bangs and wore tie-dye t-shirts when I graduated from high school... 

One of my favorite parts of this shoot was the quality of light. I try to plan shoots with the best light possible but closer to summer it's harder to get people out for golden hour shoots at 7 or 8 pm. This was definitely a much-needed, creatively energizing session, and Ally and Maddie absolutely killed it!
