The other day I convinced my friend to let me take pictures of her. This is how it went.
Me: Hey! What are you doing this weekend?
Them: (Something important and very cool)
Me: Nice! Well, wanna maybe go (insert place here) so I can take some pictures? We can even get coffee?
Them: (lots of contemplation about being in front of a camera and of course,coffee) …ok!
And then we head out to (insert place here) and take some photos. This is not how it always goes, per se. Sometimes it takes more coaxing, sometimes the coffee turns into wine. But for the most part my friends are always ready and enthusiastic for one of my tiny shoot and i’m so grateful for them.
This weekend’s weather was so incredibly warm, the exact weather i’d like to have at my life at all times. Warm but breezy and maybe a little bit cold once in a while. It’s perfect, it feels so fresh and clean and happens to be the perfect kind of weather for photoshoots. Armed with a latte from ILuvCoffee, we set out to Willistead Park and I dusted off my old portrait skills. It’s been so long since i’ve done a proper photoshoot, and with my Canon no less, I was super rusty. But I think these photos turned out pretty well even though they seem to be slightly hazy and spotty(?).
We had fun shooting and that’s the main part, right? Right?!
