Shawna and I have been Instagram friends for awhile but have never met in person, so I thought. I actually met Shawna late last November while she was photographing a wedding at the Tucson Botanical Garden. I was there, too, for another session. I remember checking out her money maker (that’s a fancy dual camera holster brand). But, I didn’t know it was her until she posted a sneak peek of that wedding a few days later. It was like a scene from, You’ve Got Mail (1998). You know, the classic with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. We actually met and didn’t know it. Star-Crossed Lovers, not actually lovers in our case but you get the idea.
Fast forward to this year, Shawna reached out to me to photograph her family. An amazing photographer is choosing me to photograph her family, umm… YES! Working with her family was super awesome, they were so easy to photograph. At the end of our session, I asked her and Michael to reenact a scene from, The Notebook (2004), first photo below. And they did it so well! With that, here are a few of my faves.
