I first met Whilloe when photographing a wedding last summer. I always tend to gravitate toward kids for photos, even at weddings, and when I sorted through my images later on I found this one.
I knew that I *needed* to have this girl in front of my camera again, so I contacted the bride, who put me in contact with Whilloe's mother, and we arranged to meet in the fall for a model session. The evening we ended up meeting, we were blessed with the type of beautiful, perfect light that just makes me adore the Upper Peninsula in the fall. I knew that we had some amazing images, but unfortunately had to put off editing them until I could give the time they really deserved. Fast forward to February of the next year, and I *finally* have them done! In fact I have so many images that it motivated me to write my first blog post in almost a year! I'm going to skimp in the writing, though, and let the images speak for themselves - they're better at it anyway.
Oh, that face . . . She's going to be a force to be reckoned with.
Make a wish.
I want to thank Whilloe and her family a thousand times for meeting up with me for this model session - it was a welcome change of pace to do something just for my own creative outlet. I hope that Whilloe enjoyed her time modeling, and I hope she (and her sister!) may want to meet again in the future! (Next time I promise I will get to the images much quicker - thanks so much for your patience!)
