For the second year in a row when we did a photo swap with Eileen and Phillip of Blume Photography while we were at the CONNECT Retreat, we walked away absolutely in love with the portraits they captured of us.
And as photographers, it is so valuable to get in front of the camera sometimes instead of only being behind it. Not only is it important for us to have photographs of ourselves (!!!), but it’s always a learning experience when other photographers are directing a session and posing us as their subjects. It’s a great opportunity to see how a session feels for a client, and pick up some new tips for how to make things run smoothly — or how to keep people laughing so hard they can hardly breathe!Forget that dreamy first picture (which I love). It’s beautiful and romantic and all — but these next two are us. Absolutely, undeniably us. We don’t ugly-cry, we weird-laugh, and we do a lot of it.I loooove the one below on the right!Thank you, Eileen and Phillip, so much and once again, for the beautiful photographs from our wonderful trip! We are so excited to get some of these into frames!
