A couple weeks ago I shared some images made in Whittier with Wild One Creations. During that shoot, I thought I learned a couple things and begged Rebecca to let me do a second shoot in Redlands at the home of a friend. She must have been crazy because she didn’t seem to hesitate at the idea, so I packed up the tepee and dragged it to Redlands. Allison of Allison Nicole Photography has this great spot in her front yard and two vivacious daughter. She was the first person I thought to team up with on this second shoot and I breathed easier when I knew she had time to help out. (Who am I kidding, I totally screamed with excitement when she wrote back with a yes!!)
This time around I prepared sketches of specific images I wanted to create and edited the images with softer tones. Again, the final images out paced my expectations – how can you see these photos and not wish you were back in the land of make believe? Those precious minutes of play in the golden light before bedtime were some of my favorite times growing up. I wanted to communicate those memories with these photos and I think that’s exactly what you feel.
