sometimes trying to come up with a pretty location for a connection session becomes problematic, especially when you live in a desert and you don't want the weeds to make an appearance in the images! :) this was exactly the case when we were trying to plan for marisa & cary's session. now it was in may which is generally pretty in new mexico but we couldn't find the prefect place, until marisa called and said she was just at her grandmothers house for mother's day and that her yard was really pretty and she wanted to shoot there. upon arrival we walked into a secret garden of sorts, rose bushes of red and yellow, purples and white, they were in every variety, everywhere! it was lovely!
now they we had a beautiful location and lovely light we just needed our couple. and they delivered as well! we always look for the best light and send our couples into that and let them be until they get used to us being there. we rarely had to offer any direction for them, we just let them cuddle and laugh and hold onto each other, things they they normally do. they were a treat to watch and capture!
we are so very lucky to witness people in their own element, comfortable in a space that they love and surrounded by the people that they love, then they can be themselves, and because they are comfortable the rest of the magic takes care of itself!
