May 16, 2011 Meet Kat

This was a pretty cool portrait session of Kat to the say the least, I’m not actually not even sure what to really call this. It was definitely hip, fun, laid-back, chic, and fashionable. I don’t do a lot of portrait sessions that is just a solo portrait session like this, but I really liked it! It’s so fun and easy.

Kat’s an inspiring actress/singer/dancer, and I think because she’s so multi-faceted the images that are from the shoot are as well, we have some images that are cute, some that are high fashion, and some that are cute, and some that just feel so personal. That’s exactly how I wanted it icon smile Meet Kat Enjoy the photos!

Picture this: a parent smiles because his/her child is all dressed up, prepared, and excited to go to school in the morning. That’s kind of what it was like when I photographed Lynn and Brendon. When I saw them waiting for me at the front of Union Station all dressed up and ready to go, I smiled. Knowing that a couple got all dressed up and are eager to shoot because I’m going to take their picture instills a really profound happiness in me.

Lynn and Brendon were so easy to photograph, so easy going, and so excited to shoot! Their excitement got me all excited! During our shoot we got to see a Mexican wedding take place at the Union Station. It was kind of cool for me to be able to spy on other wedding photographers to see what they do.  I don’t think they knew I was a wedding photographer too because when I photograph engagement sessions I dress pretty casually. I also couldn’t help but notice there were like a million photographers there shooting the same wedding. It was kind of fun to try and figure out which one was the main shooter (the boss) and which ones were the second shooters (minions). We eventually left the main area because I got distracted by the bridal party and their photographers, but we got some super amazing shots!

Thank you for being awesome!
