Here are the results:
But wait, first, it must be said that we picked the freezingest freakin cold and windy day of the month to get these done. Our first date got canceled by rain, and the next day was so windy. Absolutely ridiculous. Philly never gets cut a break.
As soon as we started working, I started panicking over two things: 1) No amount of photo editing can get rid of absurdly (shall we say) "tousled" hair due to 30mph wind and 2) Jess and Matt are really, REALLY tall and I am really, REALLY short and I was worried that every picture was going to be "looking up" at them rather than directly pointed at them. Note to self: Start bringing my kitchen step stool to these shoots.
People who live in this area will recognize this as Valley Forge Park.
Thank God, Matt grabbed a big wooly blanket out of his car.
|hmmm, Jess. Me thinks I tricked you into a 30th bday portrait, did I not? They don't call me "Dr." for nuthin.|
|Chawlee Chawlee! Also, take note of the decor here ...|
|This is the nursery--see how seamlessly it fits into the rest of the house? Jess painted the stripes herself, and they are flawless. She's a virgo, people. Eat your heart out.|
And there's our winner. Do you like it better in color or black and white? I can't choose.
Thank you to Jess and Matt for selecting me to do this. You guys were really patient and made my job pretty easy. And thanks for the SkinnyGirl! (I don't accept monetary payments, but everyone knows that I never say "No" to sugar or booze. Or booze with sugar in it.)
Can't wait to meet your first daughter--she's almost here!
|Just need to point out: See how the nursery fits in here too? Isn't that great?|
