We exchanged gushy emails about how we could style our shoot together–Christmasy, wintery, just cuddly, we said. Then life happened, HA! As it has a tendency to do, and after switching locations last minute we caught the last light of the day and talked photog talk.
We took turns being in front of the camera and I will just say, I’m a bit out of practice. I was like a squirrely little girl on her first day, my goodness! Chantel sure knows how to make people feel comfortable, though. What a star.
Chantel is a photographer, too–you can befriend her lovely self and see her work here. Isn’t she wonderful? Her blog posts always give me a pick-me-up. Also we’re music soulmates.
Smiles for fall leaves, lighting experimentations, and shooting WAY past dark. We used lights in front of a library because we are cool, mmmk.
Infectious smile + ridiculously gorgeous flowing goddess hair+ so stylish it hurts+ personality to match=Chantel.
All I know is I got in my car and my cheeks hurt from smiling–real smiles, not the plastered-on kind. Chantel, girl, you are a dream.
