Is this session personal work or client work?
This is a client session, a dear friend too.
Tell us a bit about the magic of summer + the connection to your lens?
The beautiful thing about summer is truthfully the weather, the warm lends itself to being more carefree, and one less thing to think about for the clients. Warmth lends itself to comfort, and I think gives people the ability to relax better. If I have relaxed clients, I can capture their truth in a better way, and that is always my goal. The light of summer time ignites my passion for shooting, and my favorite thing to do is to combine beautiful light and someones love story.
What about this session makes it an Epic summer session?
I truthfully think this family made the session epic. Their love is so obvious, and their story is one of grace, hope and joy, which is always going to be a beautiful thing to watch, I was just lucky enough to be there with my camera.
What else is on your summer bucket list to photograph this summer?
My dream would be to travel around Canada and to capture families in their favorite, most relaxed places. So ideally at their cabins or home, where their love story is best told.
-What gear was used to achieve the video ?
For the majority of this video I used my Canon Mark iii and my Sigma 24mm 1.4, I believe I used my 50mm 1.2 for a bit of it.
Any summer tips or photographer advice?
Look for the love and the light.
Proud wife to Tyler, blessed mama to Atticus, Sullivan and Pepper. I spend my days trying to take in their smalless, calling my sisters and mom when I’m frustrated, praying I’m better tomorrow, regretting eating too many sweets, and surprised every day at 4pm that I still have to make dinner. I love a good wheat ale beer, entertaining in our home (thank goodness my husband cooks,) and chasing sunsets in my minivan full of kids and a camera bag. When I’m not taking pictures I’m charging my camera’s battery ad making the most of these long days and short years.
