Sheila McKee Park Anniversary Portrait Session: Karen + Jason

Anniversary-Portrait-Session-Sheila-McKee-Park-Stephanie-Beach-Photography-fall-forestI know I have said it before, in fact I am pretty sure I have said it multiple times this year alone, but we get to work with the very best couples. Amazing people who are so lovely! But when the wedding day is over, it can sometimes be a while before we get to see them again.

Our calendars are so full during the year, that we don’t get a ton of free time to hang out with people outside of weddings and other sessions – at least not during the peak seasons.

Dymphna is such a pretty kitty and she did a great job in front of the camera. Who would have thought that this is the same cat who hid from guests just a few years ago?! She even does a trick. Continue reading

Pet Session: Two 2

As I mentioned in Two’s sneak peek, I haven’t done a pet session in a while. Come to think of it, Two’s previous session might have been the last one I had done before this. Two is Two now and still super adorable! I tried to take a different spin on this pet session and also get some more practice with my new macro lens.
