Every time I shoot my first engagement session of the year, I always feel like the pressure is on. I feel like I’ve gotten rusty every new year, no matter how long or short of a time it’s been since I shot last.
It was such a pleasure to shoot these two though. They were real troopers considering the cold wind, as well as the fairly rough nature hike I took them on to get to a few special spots I discovered on my “location scouting” missions I’ve started taking. There were so many times today, that I started saying, “Why don’t you…” and before I said anything, they were pretty much doing what I was going to direct them to do anyway. I felt like I was cheating to get shots this awesome.
