The light, the location, the weather, the subject(s), and the company... It all just worked for this session. From the first time I talked to her mom, Christin, on the phone I knew we would have a great shoot just from her personality. And I was not wrong. I met Christin and her daughter Sara, a gorgeous and sweet young lady for her portrait session to celebrate Sara's 16th birthday with pictures of her and the most beautiful Golden Retriever I have ever seen. We met up in Prosper, Texas for a rustic urban mixed with nature kind of shoot. What we didn't know was that, unfortunately, all of the fields had just been mowed. But that didn't matter! We found an awesome patch of dried grass (it doesn't take much) with beautiful light shining down. Sara and Libby just lit up for my camera. This dog was absolutely perfect! She may have had some energy and played around but I swear she is smiling in some of the images!
