A SUNFLOWERS AND SUNSETS MATERNITY SESSION PROVES THAT YOU CAN FIND BEAUTY IN AN UNLIKELY PLACE.
For Tyson and Elizabeth, this shoot was a well earned gift from a thoughtful friend. I received an email months ago, asking if I did gift certificates. We exchanged a couple of emails, and I sent off my certificate. I received a phone call from Tyson to set up a shoot. Not going to lie, I had forgotten about the certificate, but I was ecstatic when we were able to schedule their shoot.
I am forever scouting locations, even when I don’t have a shoot on the books A friend of mine and Eric’s is a builder and we happened to be over in a new subdivision in Temple he was building in. I was supposed to be paying attention to the houses, but I couldn’t get my mind off of the gorgeous field of sunflowers among the new builds and trash that comes with new construction. I text the two the locations, and they had actually been scouting sunflowers as well. Talk about a perfect fit.
Carrying my light diffuser, blanket and step stool, I excitedly met the Millers, who brought their two puppers. We were gonna get two sessions completed. A family and a maternity shoot. Tyson and Elizabeth were so comfortable with each other and the camera. Both came from an artistic background, and knew how to work their angles.
Tyson being the doting husband, held the light diffuser, while Elizabeth walked through the sunflowers. Her black dress, jean jacket and wide brimmed hat, felt perfectly Parisian, and I COULD NOT get enough. I asked Elizabeth to repeatedly take the hat on and off. I simple move created gorgeous imagery, and Elizabeth’s smile shown brighter than even the sunflowers.
