On a very cold day in March (yes, March– that’s how behind we are on our blogging) 😉 we had the pleasure of photograhphing this sweet little family of three. Leslie and her men had been waiting a very long time to have their SimplyBloom session, which got rescheduled for months due to weather! Finally on this March afternoon we met the Marshalls as they cuddled in front of our cameras the littlest one gave us every sweet facial expression in the book! He is such a cutie! Have a look:
We love the happy grins shown all over this family’s faces
Remember Tori and Devin? well Patrick is Tori’s little brother, see the resemblance now!? Patrick is a very accomplished senior, who recently got a full scholarship to Arizona State University! He was so comfortable in front of our cameras, with the help from his two gorgeous sisters who helped him smile and loosen up. We also took some “sibling/family shots” of the senior with his older sisters. It was so refreshing to see such a strong connection between them, although they all live ways away from each other. Soon Patrick will take off to a far away state away from his family, and we are truly happy to have captured this remarkable stage in his life. Congrats Patrick, we wish you all the very best with your collage career, we have no doubt you will make the most of it!!
Love the “Abercombie” feel of these next two photos in the field.
I (V) shot this session in Italy last August- and I am so horrible I just found the time to edit through a few of these gorgeous shots. They are a taste of summer, a taste of a simpler life, a taste of Italy. I have known Mariasole since I was 7yrs old and we have managed to stay in touch through the years and through different continents. She is also very much into photography, and this was easily seen by the comfortable way she moved in front of the camera. We shot in Sorrento as well as Positano, if you have never visited those places– they are a MUST! some of my favorites I have ever visited, and they are home. These photos mean so much more to me personally, than they may to a passer-by—- as they capture memories of my past youthful summers, & places that are so far away and yet so close to my heart. A little commentary:
Mariasole’s father was always an avid photographer as a hobby. I remember going to her house as a child and seeing black and white photos her father took of her mother smiling- superb candid photos decorated their home . Photos of her and her brother as children and even a self portrait that I remember admiring most of all. We began Mariasole’s session in her own home in Sorrento, I suggested beginning on this old piece of staircase adorned with plants. After we took the photos- she told me that her father had actually built that staircase to photograph her mother.
Your average view from Mariasole’s balcony…
We then headed to Positano. I love the artisan sandals so typical of southern Italy.
The Perfect view of Positano, I want to cuddle with this image
Mariasole is stunning, her name literally means “Mary-Sun”
AND….my favorite shot of the day
Jourdan has movie-star-good-looks, we seriously think she should be on a movie cover, don’t you!? The way she was so comfortable, delicate and uninhibited in front of the camera made this shoot so much more fun for us! When the wind would dishevel her long brown hair, she would gracefully move it out of the way in the most picturesque way, and we would snap away totally inspired 😉 She also had the great idea to bring her violin along, and we thought that was such a dramatic addition; you can almost hear violin melodies as you look at her photos. Jourdan, you were so wonderful in front of the camera– if we ever need a model, we will know who to call 😉
