Alright folks, here we go! Day Two, Part One. Yes that's right, day two is worthy of two parts! It is just impossible to squeeze all the awesomeness into one post :)
We set out on this next amazing session armed with a canoe and a paddleboat. My youngest sister Ashley drew the short straw and got to be my copilot (or shall we say copaddler?) Emily jumped at the chance to stay on land with my other camera--those pictures will forever provide a chuckle, and I'm so sorry, but no, I will not be posting those! Let's just say we learned a lot about photography on water during this time, such as:
1. I am not in any way, capable of pedaling a boat AND getting my camera ready to go at the same time. Ashley can fill you in on that one.
2. You have VERY LITTLE control over where your subjects (and yourself!) end up in said body of water. JUST as Heidi and John would get where I wanted them we would have lost our position--can you say frustrating?! (Don't get me wrong though, we were laughing A LOT).
3. It is way, WAY harder than it looks to get two people in the same place in a canoe. But once you get them there, it is totally awesome. :)
4. "Row, row, row your boat" is inevitably going to find a way into your head after looking at these pictures!
And we're off!
Have I mentioned how much I love these two?? Word of the day: So cute. I know that's two words, just go with it.
Speaking of so cute......
I really couldn't have asked for more perfect lighting here!
One of the things John and Heidi like to do together is hike and go on picnics, so we thought it would be super fun to recreate that type of setting. Heidi had just picked up an old picnic basket that worked perfect, and I gathered some things from their house to bring along--don't worry, I don't typically rummage through my clients' homes for props!! :) (Although if you ever need me to.....kidding!!)
We were quickly losing that perfect lighting but John and Heidi required so little guidance that we soon had more than enough, plus a little extra! You may notice what seems to be some exercising in one image...:)....the location we were in apparently is great for half naked men to land literally RIGHT NEXT TO US and workout!! John and Heidi just couldn't miss out on the action!
Just a little light reading....
Aaaaaand probably my favorite picture from today's episode....
Stay tuned for Day Two: Part Two, Sunset on the dock!
