Cannon & Sophia
This session was different. This session threw me out of my comfort zone. But I knew if I didn't start making changes soon, my work and my business would never grow. That leads me to Cannon and Sophia. They are family friends of ours and have been dating for about a year and half now. As you can tell from their smiles, they both have beautiful souls and were the perfect pair for this photoshoot.
Downtown Pontiac was the location of Cannon & Sophia's session. If you have never been there, I would suggest taking a trip one of these days! Whether it be for a photoshoot (tons of locations), good food, breweries, or a wedding. They have it all.
I had a vision for this session. I asked them to model for me and for the first time ever, I picked out their outfits. All growing up I would claim that I was never good with fashion and would always ask for others' opinions when it came to wardrobe. This is why I was so nervous to plan their outfits together, especially when they started asking me about color/style of shoes and accessories. However, I was determined to make this change in myself and challenge my past thoughts about self doubt and just do it!
The outfits turned out SO great together and I could not have been happier. Not to mention either of them could have probably pulled off just about anything. I tried new angles and poses. I set the time of the photoshoot for hours before sunset to practice shooting in harsh light. I wasn't afraid to get too close or too far away. And the whole time, they just went with it.
One last thing that was different with this gallery consists of three words: BLACK. AND. WHITE. This used to scare me in the past. And I always assumed people prefer color anyways, so there's usually only about 2-5 black and white photos in a gallery. 42 photos. Thats how many black and whites I gave them with this gallery. 42! I couldn't be stopped, and what made it even better is that a lot of their favorite photos were those black and white ones.
All in all, Cannon and Sophia's session was an absolute dream (after getting through all of the new obstacles and challenges). They started a spark in me that will change the rest of my work starting now. I could not be more thankful for this beautiful couple modeling for me.
