When I was getting more serious about taking the leap of faith and stepping WAY out of my comfort zone by starting a business doing what I LOVE, I did a couple free sessions to practice and build my portfolio.
My best friend, Kady, was going to Aveda at the time and had become friends with Mackenzie, the beautiful brunette in these pictures. Mackenzie was interested in getting pictures done with her girlfriend, Melanie, so we took this to a park and got to taking pictures (after Kady did their hair and makeup. Gorgeously I might add).
Mackenzie and Melanie were naturals in front of the camera and extremely patient with me, which was so great while I figured out how to be an actual photographer with a personality and not just someone who took pictures. I love the love between these two in these pictures. They were literally just walking around being cute as I captured it. I'm still so grateful for this session because they were some of my first clients and they made this so much fun and enjoyable for me from the very beginning - that gave me hope.
Mackenzie and Melanie are now engaged and taking on the world together. They are a beautiful couple made up of two beautiful, sweet, talented girls. I hope for nothing but great things for them on their journeys ahead!
