So when Kelly first asked me to do a shoot of her & her husband, Joe for their 7th wedding anniversary, she specifically requested pictures that were “not lame”. After further probing, I learned that what she was really looking for was a shoot that showed their true selves, not cheesy poses and lacquered on smiles for “family portraits”. They are a cool, laid back couple who just love hanging out together. So we picked a familiar, laid back location and I got to snap away while they did what they love–hang out. The lesson: Even on a photo shoot, Mama’s words still ring true. “Be Yourself!” Joe & Kelly did and the result was so genuine and incredible. Thanks guys!
