So. Last Sunday I had my first ever “official” photo shoot of people who weren’t my sister. Exciting, I know. 🙂 It was so much fun! The weather was beautiful; the sun was shining, the temperature was in the upper 40’s, and there was no wind (which is highly unusual for North Dakota).
Maybe I should back up, and explain how this whole photo shoot business came about. I met Savannah a few weeks ago, when we were both doing internships at the same facility; she for pharmacy and I for dietetics. We immediately realized that we have a lot of things in common, so much so that we decided we are basically long lost sisters. Savannah introduced me to her boyfriend Justin, and one night I was showing them some photos that I have taken with my fancy lil’ camera in the last couple of months. Savannah declared that I needed to take photos of her immediately, but then we decided that 10 pm on a Thursday night would probably not be the best time for a photo shoot. So we decided on Sunday, three days later, in Fargo ND.
I was nervous as hell. Savannah was so excited and I was like, umm I’ve never really taken photos like this before and she was just so confident in me, I did not want to disappoint her. But, my fears were not to be realized, because she loved all of the photos. Once I got started, I really found my element, and I think I took upwards of 800 photos. Unsure if taking 800+ photos is an unusual thing to do during a photo shoot, as I have never done one until now. So I am going to say no, it is not an unusual thing, and that I probably should have taken more. It’s a learning experience, that’s for sure!
In any case, Savannah and Justin were adorable and Justin’s daughter was such a cutie. She wore two different LuLaRoe dresses and leggings that Savannah had bought for her, and seriously, bring on the “oh for cutes” because OH FOR CUTE. Seven really is quite the age. Ahh, nostalgia.
Here are some of my favorite pictures of Savannah, Justin, and Eloise from last weekend. There are more hidden somewhere in my blog, I think under the gallery there should be two tabs with photos in them. Not 100% sure on how to run this thing yet. Also a learning experience. 🙂
