I’ll never forget one of the first messages I got from Alicia.
“You can practice on a friendly face!”
This came after seeing her post in the Amy & Jordan Shooting & Editing Course Facebook group, where she asked if anyone around the Bend, OR area wanted to trade family photos. I responded and said that I would love to, but wasn’t very far through the course so didn’t feel super confident shooting in this “new” style (read: light + bright + airy). But Alicia was sooo sweet, as you can see from her message above, and I am so glad that she agreed to trade sessions! I, of course, didn’t have a family with littles running around, but I did have a handsome boyfriend who I never seem to have enough photos of. ❤
We drove across the pass one Sunday early in December, and met at the BEAUTIFUL Shevlin Park in Bend. I am seriously considering a move that direction (kidding. sort of.) because of how freaking beautiful it is over there. Despite the sunshine, it was still *really* cold, but everyone did amazing, and the session turned into one of my absolute favorites. Definitely a good way to close out there year!
Alicia, you + your family are incredible, and I am so glad that we got to be in front of each other’s cameras. The photos you delivered of me + my man are GORGEOUS, and I will treasure them forever.
I cannot wait to collaborate with you again!
