When Katrina and I were in talks with regards to a Mothers Day mini shoot, I thought how lovely of this family to get together to capture the beautiful moments between mother and daughter(s). However, I was completely wrong, when I had shown up at our location (Albion Falls) and to my surprise, no mother. I thought, oh dear, we’re missing a BIG component! The three sisters all laughed at me, and Katrina stated, ‘no, it’s FOR Mothers Day’…OHHHHHHHHHHH!
These girls were a thrill to work with. They giggled, and held one another’s hand when climbing, they wiped mud off one another’s shoes and everything was so innate. The group dynamics were beautiful, and that made for such a beautiful shoot.
Except when starting out. I had to encourage them to ‘pretend to like each other!’… They were all so coy…:)
I also came to some realizations:
- Do NOT wear ballet flats to scale Albion
- I am getting old, as the girls were very adventurous, and I was quite hesitant (I think we met half way:)
- I really do love working in the elements, you really can’t beat mother natures beauty
