I’m excited to share this graduation session as it was such a beautiful evening in Manitoba. A shoot that makes me smile to think about how perfect the evening was with gorgeous prairie sunlight, pretty locations and especially being in the company of really great gals! Back when I first went to nanny (which I’m pretty sure every time I post photos of their family I relate back to that but there’s so many fun memories of time with their family and we made a lifelong bond), Ashlyn was the sweet little girl that I carried on my hip for most of the harvest season. She is still super sweet in her quiet nature and did incredible well putting up with two photographers and all our ideas – and when we had a hard time putting away our cameras even once the sun had set and the mosquitoes were out in full force. Everything else was just too good!!
It’s neat when plans need to change and then become something even better. We were originally planning this session along with family portraits in June but then had to reschedule to July. Which turned out great as my wonderful, talented friend Melissa was up from Palm Springs visiting her family that live close to there and was willing to come along! I would happily shoot every session with Melissa by my side, my dream team!!! Along with Amy, the beautiful graduate’s sister, coming along to add in laughs and we put her to work assisting us too. It all felt really inspiring and the creative energy was great!! Thanks ladies for all your help and there are a few photos in this post that were taken by Melissa, to share from her perspective too!
Congratulations on your graduation Ashlyn, I know you will excel at all that you continue on to do. Thanks for the really enjoyable time photographing you!!
Ending off with a special photo back at home with their dog Abby.
