Well, I had a very fun and very busy day when I drove down to Osage, Iowa to meet with Kendra and her mom for a morning of on-location portraits in their hometown. I photographed Kendra’s older brother, Kolby a few years back and so they were all very excited to create some amazing images for this beautiful young lady.
I’m always honored when my customers return to me. And I’ve done lots of returning families with younger siblings becoming Seniors this year, which makes me VERY HAPPY! I know just how many other photographers there are out there these days, creating facebook pages and trying to lure my customers away with lower prices or fancy photo treatments. I know I’m doing something right when people tell me they want MY EXPERIENCE, MY TALENT… I love that they enjoy the simplicity of my images and the natural expressions I am able to coax out of their loved ones.
I can’t imagine trying to do anything else. This is who I am, this is my style and my brand. I dabble in the props and cutesy stuff a little bit with newborns, but I just can’t help myself… what else are you going to do with a sleeping baby??? LOL!
But back to Kendra, and her images…
We did some at her grandparent’s place where they have this fantastic gazebo built into the bluffs overlooking the river below… such a magical location!
Then we went down to the river itself, and around town… finding sources of inspiration everywhere we looked!
We also took some with her (very tame and docile) award winning heifer… it’s almost like it’s a girl relaxing by the tree with her horse! A beautiful creature indeed!
After the morning festivities, we gathered up her immediate family for a little session at their home farm.
But, we still weren’t done!!! Once we finished that, we drove over to Kendra’s grandparent’s farm to photograph the whole Berg clan!
Look at these cute little cousins she has! They are just too cute!
All in all, it was a jam-packed day and I was darn happy to set my heavy camera down at the end… but it was definitely worth it when I saw all these great memories we created together.
I’m excited to share the images from my latest engagement session with you. It has been truly beautiful around here the last two weeks. I have a ton of trees that turn colors and they make fall a very photogenic time of year at the Rebecca Lynne Photography studio!
This gorgeous young lady, Ellie, just so happens to be related to me through my husband. And so I’ve known her over 10 years now, but haven’t gotten to spend all that much time with her before now.
All Ellie knew… was that she loved LOVED my images! 🙂 I was touched by how adamant she was about having me photograph her wedding.
And I’m really enjoying getting to know her better and hearing about her wedding day plans. It’s so much fun to create a “vision” for the day… and it really helps when your photographer has a good understanding of that vision ahead of time so they can capture it fully.
The day we took these portraits, it was pretty windy and I was a tad worried about Ellie and her long hair getting blown every which way. But she was so cool and laid-back about it all. She was like, “No biggie, I can put my hair in a ponytail”… my kind of girl! 🙂
Anyhow, I just wanted to say, before I sign off… that I really like Alex and know he will be a great match for Ellie. Seeing the way they interact with each other and all the cute faces they’d share, makes me feel really good about their upcoming marriage.
