BEFORE WE START: I have made it to the final round of the Pacific Weddings Magazine "Hit me with your best shot!" contest. Basically, if my shot of Helen and Tyler wins then it gets a full page spread in their Winter/Spring edition. Voting ends on Oct. 23rd (yeah I know, I have NO idea how they think they are going to manage counting all of those comments with a contest that long but... hey!) so if you haven't already and or you have and you want to give a 2nd opinion head on over to: http://pacificweddings.typepad.com/love_notes/2009/10/vote-photo-contest-finalists.html
and leave a comment with something along the lines of, "My vote goes to With This Kiss!" ... or whatev...
I have been looking forward to sharing this shoot because I just love the feeling these images evoke! When Andrea emailed me and told me her and her sister Amanda (who was in my graduating class at Pres. and used to swoon over BSB and NSYNC and whoever else with me during free period) wanted to get some cool portraits of themselves done as a gift for their mom the ball started rolling with tons of fun ideas as to what to do for their images- they totally get what I am about and were ready and willing to have as much fun as I asked for! Thanks so much for such a great afternoon guys!
