We love it when our clients want to do their shoot in the evening. Not only does it mean we don’t have to get up early, it also means it will be our last session of the day - and if no one is in a rush we like to stick around for a little sunset photography.
We’d been walking around Fort DeSoto for about an hour, and Susie and Trevor were doing great. They were so comfortable with one another, and we could tell from their playful interactions that they knew how to enjoy life. By the time the sun got low in the sky we felt we like had known them for a long time.
This wasn’t our first time at Fort DeSoto, though it was our first session there with clients. We’d been there before while visiting Jakes parents in Florida on vacation from the cold New Hampshire winters. But we always want to do a little exploring, so we arrived early for a picnic dinner with a little extra time to look around. We found a section of beach accessed by a sandy path through the dunes. It couldn’t have been more perfect for photography. Walking through there with Susie and Trevor felt like exploring the pages of a magazine. And when we came to the beach there wasn’t another person within a quarter of a mile.
I think karma must have played a role. Our clients have all been such incredible people, and Susie and Trevor were shining examples. Susie is a teacher, and Trevor is a therapist for autistic children. Of course the universe granted them such a wonderful evening for their couples session. And we must have good karma too, because time after time we are lucky enough to meet people like these.
