This entire session was pure magic. And ladies and gentlemen...I photographed a shooting star during a sunset. I don't think I'm going to get over that excitement for a very long time!
I had no idea that I had captured this awesome sight until I was deep into editing. When photographing people I always expose (choose the brightness of a photo) based on skin tones which often leaves the sky white. But when the sun is low enough I can bring back the sky while editing. So that's what I was doing, working on bringing back the gorgeous sunset colors surrounding the cascade view from the James family's farm. And with one magic stroke...there it was. A perfect cherry on top of this fantastic session.
Amy, Randy, Casey, Katey, and Tucker are all near and dear to my heart. I've performed in musical theatre shows with many of them, and I'm convinced few things bring people closer together than theatre. They have generous hearts and a humorous side that will make you either role your eyes or laugh till wine comes out your nose. TMI
Our evening together at their beautiful farm was a wonderful experience and I'm excited to share it with all of you!
Randy and Amy, thank you so much for the opportunity to capture your family's love and playfulness. Enjoy the glimpse of your session (I have edited over 100...so there's a lot heading your way soon).
