I always start each engagement session with the more formal poses…the poses I call the “Grandparent pictures”…they go in a 5x7 on the shelf or in the dining room!
From there it’s a pretty short time before we start getting more casual with our poses…really working towards reflecting the true personality of their relationship, and Chris and Alex did not disappoint! It was such a short time before they were at ease with the camera and laughing!
You want us to do what, Kelly?
These two were up to try anything with me!
I love, love, love, this image so much!! Behind them is the pond where Chris asked Alex to marry him.
This is the one spot where Chris was like, “You want to take a picture HERE?” What you can’t see is that in the background and back behind the tree is a bunch of farm equipment.
It ended up one of my favorites from the evening!!
And then Chris suggested we head over to the old pump house, where during the spring rain family members will take turns staying up all night monitoring the water levels of the lake nearby making sure that they fields and homes don’t get flooded. It was EVERYTHING that I love in a spot, great windows letting in just a bit of light! And then despite all of the images from earlier that I knew I would love, I instantly knew that this series from the pump house would take the cake and be my favorites!
