And There Was Snow…

This post has literally been a year in the making. Last year around this time, Kindra and I were waiting, and waiting for a big snow fall to arrive so we could head out for some portraits. Little did we know it would be a winter without snow. I was bummed and watched as another round of season’s passed us by. As winter drew closer, I got a bit excited with the hope that maybe this year we would finally get some snow. The skies delivered. I got a hold of Kindra and we got things set up. The snow had fallen again over night and as I opened my curtains this morning, I did a little dance…I could not wait for Kindra to arrive for some snow fun.Kindra braved the cold temperature. I’m sure she was freezing, but she wasn’t even shaking. Her long locks of red hair flowed in the wind gusts that came through our pines. I was in photo heaven.Over the last few year’s, I’ve had the chance to photograph several people from Kindra’s family and they are all so sweet. It’s been great getting to know them all. A great group of people.The basis of this session had been long planned over one simple tree….I’ve passed this tree countless time’s and it’s always stood out to me as a must have place to shoot. I tend to get images running in my head and I can’t get them out… for me this was a creative release shoot. This tree has that Sleepy Hollow feel to it……perfect for what I was going for.
We made our way through the snow, deep snow…at points it was up to our knee’s. The wind had nothing to break against but our skin. Can I just say ‘WOW’!I had to get a picture of Kindra in a beautiful scarf she’d made….if only I had that talent. I loved the way it made her blue eye’s pop. Today was a lot of fun…..very cold….but so worth the wait. Thanks so much Kindra for coming out……and thanks Jason for the extra hand. I hope you two were able to warm up!
