Natalie, a "just because" session | Riverside Portrait Photographer

Natalie is a friend of Carrie's (the girl in the post right below this one!) - Carrie and I wanted to go out and shoot together so she asked Natalie to be our model. We had a great time just shooting for fun - I highly suggest that every photographer do this from time to time. And yeah, since my site forces me to choose a catagory, I put Natalie under "seniors" even though she's 27 :)

Kelly & Patrick's Engagement Session

This session went flawlessly until I woke up about 8 hours later itching from head to toe. Poor Kelly and I were eaten alive by mosquitos! We noticed them around while we were shooting but personally, I didn't think much of it. I feel so, so bad that I didn't realize how bad it was and that Kelly got so many bites (I counted and I had about 25 just on my arms and shoulders and she said she got about the same). I'm hoping that Patrick's friends don't make fun of him too much after seeing these photos. I hear that in their circle of friends the guys like to tease eachother about their engagement and wedding photos. I totally admit that I tried a really cheesy pose, but it was even too cheesy for me so I'm not going to include it. haha. I think Patrick's friends would have had a hay day with it and I don't want him to go through that ;) The most important thing is that your future wife looks amazing, right Patrick?! (hint: YES!)
