Cait W. | Winter Portraits

Wintertime is often thought of as grey, dreary, cold... just... not fun.  Unless you really love the holidays... THEN, it might be fun.  But I think we can all agree that the winter *weather* can be less than pleasant at times.  Because of this, a lot of location photographers, including myself, tend to slow down and catch up on all of their posting, blogging, (packing to move to Nashville...), what have you. I thought I was pretty much done shooting for the season when the lovely Caitlin W. contacted me about doing a shoot.  I was more than happy to stretch my muscles and get out and shoot with her (especially since I had just gotten a new lens I was DYING to try out!! ).

I ended up taking Cait to a trail my husband and I had hiked a few weeks prior.  When Keith and I were there hiking, there was a spot that had tall grass-like vegetation that looked really awesome!   From the moment I saw it, I knew I wanted to do a shoot in it, however as luck would have it, by the time Cait and I arrived to the trail a few weeks later (after a snow, and some ice, and some good heavy rain), the "grass" was all flattened down and matted together.  I was bummed.  ...For a second.  Because instead of cool tall grasses... the trade off was AWESOME, glorious, sunlight.

I was down with that. ^_^

All I had been concentrating on during the weeks approaching the shoot, was that grass.  I ignored the fact that the sunlight had the potential to be pretty rockin' because... well... my luck always has it that when I plan on shooting in awesome sunlight..........there isn't any.  But I lucked out this time.  :D

BOY did we luck out!

And while it was a bit chilly, it wasn't NEARLY as cold as it *could* have been, so the day was fabulous all around.

Wanna see??? :D

Here is what Cait and I ended up with from that day!!
