I feel sort of silly admitting this, but I always refer to clients as "mine"..."My bride..." or "My graduate..." but theres a connection that comes from spending an hour to a whole afternoon with someone you may have never met before and opening up - being openly vulnerable - trusting you so that you can get the desired outcome.  I guess it's this connection that causes the sort of hoggish behavior when it comes to my amazing clients.

and this is ever so true for mckenzie. 
i hadn't even met her before our session, other then the few
e-mails and the 2-second facebook stalk so I could put face to name.  mckenzie is such a sweetheart and gorgeous as all get out, and we instantly just clicked.

We started out at a local coffee shop, she talked about her dreams after graduation, about growing up in a small north NORTH type town by the border of Canada, all while I took photos.  We ended up venturing to the ally behind the coffee shop for some more photos and (no lie!) to soak up some of the amazing sunshine that we were getting that day (sunroof weather anyone?)

We ended over on the University's campus.  It being my alma mater, I felt like I talked mckenzie's ear off...but if I did she never once brought it to my attention.  she was just that chill about everything.  Honestly, if someone who's never met you, trusts you when you ask them to lay down on the library floor and let's you touch their hair...you've got some magic about to happen.

Ugh!  I've just been so jazzed about this whole session, here's some shots (though choosing has been overtly difficult).

Congratulations Lady!  I'm so excited for all that you have ahead of you!!!

With Grace&Guts,
