This past Sunday, it was a beautiful 70 degrees with a stunning Carolina blue sky. It was perfection for a photo shoot! I had chosen Rankin Lake Park in Gastonia, NC for this particular photo shoot. But, what does everyone wanna do on a winter day at 70 degrees? Go to the park of course! It was so crowded, not a single parking space open when I got there. I had to park on the side of a hill. Luckily I had shot there before so I knew some semi secluded spots for photos!
Miss Kourtney arrived shortly after I did, and had a whole crew of people with her. Mom, Dad, little sister, Best Friend, and Boyfriend! I thought it was so sweet that everyone came to take part in the photo shoot. It shows that she didn't get through school all on her own, each one of these people had a special part in the love and support it took to get her there!
I wanted a majority of the shoot to be completely candid. Candid's are my favorite because you capture the realness of the moment. Kourtney's mom had also mentioned to me while we were setting up the session that she liked candid shots as well. So I took photos of Kourtney and each family/friend, and just asked them to talk to each other. What happened in those photos was magical. It was everything I could have hoped for and more. They turned out to be some of my favorite photos I've ever done. I had such a great time laughing and working with them, i only hope that I am lucky enough to get to do it again some day!
