A few weeks ago, our good friend, Preston Davis of Divine Order Photography, met up with us in one of our favorite spots, the Marin Headlands, to take some pictures of us. Believe it or not, this was our first professional photo session. I'm ashamed to admit that I was not exactly looking forward to our shoot. I have no problem showcasing other people in front of the camera, but in perfectly hypocritical fashion, I actually do not like having my picture taken. So, during our shoot with Preston, I was pleasantly surprised by how much fun it was! Adm, Kiki and I had a GREAT time running around, holding hands, hugging, kissing, calling wild turkeys, and I think I laughed more during our shoot than I have in a LONG time. I'm pretty sure what started out as nervous giggles turned into full on cackling on my part, and c'mon, who doesn't love to laugh?
I will say that after doing the shoot, I have much more empathy for my couples. Modeling is no easy task, and so that makes us want to work even harder to put our clients at ease so that we can draw out their personalities. We were in luck with Preston since we already knew him and felt pretty comfortable with him. Aside from the fact that we've got a set of great images (something my mom is very happy about), it was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
