When the temps start dropping outside, I know I’m about to get a little less busy with photo sessions. The fact is, a lot of people don’t like the idea of an outdoor photo shoot if they are going to be cold or have to bundle up. I don’t do as many sessions in the winter months, but I have found that my winter sessions are often some of my favorites, especially with couples. As I joked with John and Jessica at the beginning of their chilly, windy session… they had a very good excuse to cuddle up! The Shaw Nature Reserve was a perfect place for this session- the tall grasses blowing softly in the wind, the quiet stillness of nature accepting that winter had arrived… it made for a very romantic setting! Jessica and John were fantastic to work with… the perfect combination of goofy playfulness, affection, and tenderness. Yes, I was quite convinced that they like each other. :) I loved the props they brought along… nothing says “snuggle up together” quite like a big plaid blanket, and the sign they made with their wedding date was so cute! We even got their cute pup, Denver, into a few shots (she was SOOO excited to be outside, but very well behaved!). I loved so many pictures from this session, it was hard to narrow it down for the blog- but here are some of my faves! Enjoy!
