One of the hardest things after I moved back to Houston from Lubbock was that loss of all my close photographer friends. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still friends with a lot of my Lubbock peeps, but being able to go out and shoot with friends just for fun, or having monthly lunches dedicated to photography and business related topics…there really is no replacement. A lot of photographers work from home by themselves without much interaction with the outside world during the day except for Twitter and Facebook. Speaking of Twitter, that’s how Katie (of Katie Lamb Photography) and I connected. Social media can be an amazing tool. I’m so glad Katie and I were able to connect on Twitter and eventually meet for lunch! That lunch has formed into a great friendship that I’m incredibly grateful for. We ended up going to WPPI together and continue to call or facebook chat (yes, facebook chat- we are so cool it hurts) sometimes into the wee hours of the night with questions and bouncing ideas off each other while we are editing.
Recently, Katie and I decided to put together a styled shoot, nautical themed, just for fun and to get creative again. Lucky for me, Katie is super crafty and handmade a lot of what we used during this shoot.
A huge thanks to Zack and Brynn who are adorably cute and were fantastic models for us! These two are recent residents of Houston as of a few months ago, and I hope they had fun in front of our cameras and seeing another part of Houston.
Katie and I choose the Kemah Boardwalk for our location. We had envisioned sailboats as part of the backdrop and ended up making friends with a couple of boat Captains to let us down to the dock area that was gated off. It was so worth it, because these photos turned out AH-Mazing and just what we were envisioning!
A huge thanks to Thea from KAYO by Thea who did Brynn’s fabulous makeup!
Love these next two…I think it’s safe to say I love laughter.
Brynn, that picture on the left? You look gorgeous!
