Time was up, the light turned green and traffic was barreling down Congress once again, but we were still in the middle of the intersection! There was a slight panic, along with an overwhelming urge to make it to the sidewalk and out of the street, but ultimately we had a good laugh once we were out of harm’s way. I learned a great photographic lesson with Kristen and Kyle that day while doing their engagement pictures. A great icebreaker for any photo shoot is to be thrust into something hazardous, perilous or even something you aren’t a 100% certain of the outcome. By doing this, you tend to completely forget about being self-conscious and totally focus on two things: 1) following the direction of your photographer for looking awesome and 2) not dying. I guess when self-preservation kicks-in, any thought of possibly being awkward or self-conscious is moved to the back burner. Once we were done dodging traffic, the rest of their shoot was a breeze!
All kidding aside, Kristen and Kyle killed it during their engagement session. They were game for just about anything, they were having a great time (me too!) and it really shows in their pictures. Their wedding later this summer is going to be a lot of fun!
