Going through the archives I found tons of great images of Miss Kacie Marie that I have neglected to share. It’s odd and sweet to think how long I have known this little lady.
These specific images are from the first day she arrived. She was putting on her make-up so we could go to a nearby park to shoot. Then we probably came back and drank whiskey. Yeah, that probably happened.
Earlier this year Roarie came to visit my small home town and gave me the most interesting 60 hours I had experienced in a long time. I have so many great images of her that just looking at the vast number of files exhausts me. I am trying to tackle the backlog now so here is a first taste of what is to come.
Cherish moved away a few years ago, but I always look forward to the holidays because I know we can usually squeeze in a shoot before she leaves. This morning we got up early and drove out to a quiet wooded area for some really pretty shots in the bright Autumn sun.
I was always a creative kid, making odd things and drawing on any scrap of paper I could find. One of the most common comments my loving and supportive older brother would give me was “You’re going to end up drawing caricatures out of a mini-bus on the beach someday.” Yesterday, while I was shooting some family Christmas portraits for a client, I spied this woman making drawings and necklaces in her mini-bus at our Refugio Beach location. A sudden chill crept down my spine and a smirk crawled across my face.
Jesslyn has a reputation for being a bit loud, opinionated, even abrasive at times, and that is putting it mildly. Still, when I think of her I only see a quiet, introspective person. We may not get to see each other often, but when we have time to visit we only talk about the most serious of topics and I get to see the real, thoughtful, serious person that can sometimes be hidden under all the intensity. I thought this recent image captured that well, and I was in that kind of mood myself today, so here it is.
