Earlier this year, Stephen and I bought a new house. It’s in a new neighborhood, outside of the city and the apartment that we had grown to love so very much. Our favorite part of that little apartment was the fact that it was a 3 minute drive to the Rocky River. Stephen loves to fish and we spent so many summer evenings on that lake together. He’d patiently wade the river, and I’d sit nearby with a book in my hand.
When Cait contacted me to schedule a session, she knew exactly where she wanted her photos taken – that same spot near the river where Stephen and I spent so many evenings together.
I love photographing other photographers. Cait recently transitioned her business from portrait work to product photography. We spent one of the last warm evenings of the year together taking photos of her for her brand new website. Am I allowed to say that we nailed it? Because we definitely did.
“In open fields of wild flowers, she breathes the air and flies away.
She thanks her Jesus for the daisies and the roses in no simple language.
Someday she’ll understand the meaning of it all.”
You know when you meet someone and it feels like you’ve been friends forever? That’s Lori. We sent numerous emails before we finally met in person but as soon as we met, I knew this was going to be a good thing.
She’s an incredible musician and needed some photos for merch she’s selling at her next show. When Lori was describing her vision for the shoot, I just got it. This shoot is an example of collaboration at its finest. The day of our shoot, it happened to be about 32 degrees too warm. We sweat our buns off. But in the end, we both agreed that it was so worth it.
Here are some of my favorites from our shoot.
In a haze of stormy haze, I’ll be around.
I’ll be loving you always, always.
Here I am and I take my time.
Here I am and I’ll wait in line always.
