My First “Official” Shoot!

…At least “official” in terms of the fact that I didn’t know them before the shoot, but Bree and Kate were so much fun right off the bat that by the time we were done with meeting over coffee I felt like we were already friends! Bree and her daughter are just gorgeous and full of fun, which made them a cinch to work with. Thanks for making my first “non-friends or family” shoot such a breeze, girls!
I’ll post hers of Emily and I soon, too! (Bree started a PIF on the CM board, so we traded sessions, which was really fun since our daughters are the same age. Though I admit Bree was so beautiful that she made me feel utterly frumpy–LOL!)

    It’s Bree! Fantastic photos Jessica, you’ve a real talent for this and I am so glad you did this PIF exchange with Bree. You’ve captured some wonderful emotions here and your conversion on the last photo is stunning. I will be blog stalking you now even more than normal as I wait to see the photos of you and Emily! xReplyCancel
