Kelsie and I first met several years ago while last-minute filling in as models for another photographer's styled shoot (since I know y'all are curious, I'll include some of those shots at the end ;)). We instantly connected over our shared passion for goofiness and photography, and have photographed lots together since then (pretty much all the photos I ever post of myself were taken by her) and shared the joys and challenges of our respective photography journeys.

I was so honored and excited when she chose me to do this portrait session with her and her husband. They wanted something that showed their personalities, so we got as weird and silly as we wanted to and it was great. We were kicked out of a parking garage, hid behind a dumpster, and recreated a section of Michelangelo's "The Creation of Adam".
