My best friend Katherine Brackman (www.kangellphotography.com) and I typically get together on a consistent basis for a variety of fun girly dates. Most of these usually involve creative discussions, business adventures, spiritual awakenings, plenty of laughter and most importantly a bottle… occasionally two, of wine! We have known each other for many years and have spent a lot of time invested in building one another up and supporting each other’s passions in life. I have worked by Katherine on a handful of weddings in 2016 and look forward to many more ahead in the new year! One of my favorite moments when we are on our girly dates, is when we spontaneously decide to do a lifestyle photography session of each other.
Katherine and I both reside around the Boston area and like to travel around varying locations for our shoots. Our most recent lifestyle session was at the Boston Public Library located on the bustling street of Boylston. What I remember most vividly during this shoot is how COLD it was!! We had just come from scouting out a venue for a wedding we will be shooting together later this year and remembered how close the library was. It was super windy out but we still wanted to capture some shots outside and yet not be affected by the ridiculous weather we were having! The temperature in Massachusetts varies SO much, especially in the winter… and sometimes you just never really know what you’re going to get! In this case, the Boston Public Library was perfect because they have the most gorgeous courtyard nestled right in the buildings core. This means no wind! It was still super cold but when it comes to photography… Kat and I are hardcore! At least we try to be. lol!
The next lifestyle shoot we’re planning to do will be located outside of Massachusetts, and definitely somewhere warm. We haven’t pinpointed an exact place yet but I am so looking forward to our next lifestyle and travel adventure! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy our fun casual shoot at the Boston Public Library!
