Hardly anyone takes me up on my suggestion to shoot first thing in the morning when the sun is rising.
When Emily and I were emailing to set up this session and I told her I thought super early in the morning would be a great time for us to shoot, she was like, “Dude, how early are we talkin’ here?”
I said, “Not that early–if we’re shooting by 7:30am or so, we should be good.”
“Oh, that’s totally fine,” she said.
I thought she was just being agreeable so when I got over there at 7:25am I didn’t expect that they would all be dressed, looking great, bright-eyed and ready to go. I should’ve known getting up early wasn’t a big deal to them, though: Emily’s dad is in charge of like the entire Marine Corps or something. [Possible slight exaggeration.] Plus, they’ve got a 5 month old. How much sleep could they possibly be getting anyway?
The light in the morning was just fantastic, just perfect, and we had a great time. The thing I love best about Emily and Alex is that they seem like such good pals–I think that’s a really big deal. He can make her laugh so easy, just like that. They just seem really good together. I love couples like that.
And how freaking cute is Caleb!? Right??? Seems like just yesterday we did his newborn session….
ANYway, enough of my chattering. Here are some faves from our shoot. Enjoy!
