I hate winter. It's cold, and dark and no fun at all. But, as a new Englander I have to find a way to cope with the longest season that we have. January is a slow month for photography, which is good, it gives me time to plan for the rest of the year, update galleries, business cards etc. It's also the perfect time to take photos just for fun! One of my favorite activities is getting in the car with my mom and sister, packing up some clothes, makeup, the dog and snacks (duh), and driving around until we find a cool location to shoot. It could be anything from a pretty cluster of trees, to a barn full of farm equipment. We get the tunes bumping and get to shooting! Here's a collection of images we shot when I was home in Maine for Christmas, and let me tell you. It. Was. Cold. The kind of cold that hurts your face, freezes the inside of your nose, and makes your toes feel like they are going to fall off. Some polar vortex crap. But, nothing will get in the way of our image making! I even got in on a few shots! Also, I have some really exciting news to share with you all at the end of February! Enjoy these wintery photos from your warm bed and think happy thoughts, summer is coming!
