To my current blog readers: I am taking an online photography class from the fabulous Brooke Snow and I am posting my assignments on my personal blog for submission. So for the next 4 weeks, you'll get to take a peak at my handy work :)
For this assignment, I took the models from my own home. They're are just too cute, I couldn't resist.
One challenge I had in this shoot (besides trying to keep my two year old happy and attentive during his normal nap time...) is discovering a location in a city I've only lived in for a few short weeks. But this one definitely paid off! And I was able to find many spots along our walk near the Chattahoochee River (yes, just like Alan Jackson sings about) to exhaust the location.
I made a long shot list, and had a plan going into the shoot, and it gave me great ideas throughout.
Although I discovered sometimes a pose just can't be planned, and those turned out to be some of my favorites. This is Jack's response when asked how old he is:
(we're still working on keepin' that thumb down...)
He: Graduated from BYU with a BA in Middle Eastern Studies/Arabic. He is an Infantry Officer in the US Army.
She: Loves being home with her boys all day, photography, and pretending she's Martha Stewart.
They: have been married 4+ years. We live in Washington near Fort Lewis, and we're enjoying being so close to some family.
We are excited for the adventures to come!
