Right in the heart of Downtown Port Huron, Michigan in one of the cutest coffee shops I've ever seen (The Exquisite Corpse) awaits a family. They order their coffee and pay at the counter. Stripping jackets and getting cozy they pile in behind the large table and open up their usual reading material of comics and art.
And then all I simply do is step in and capture that love and lifestyle they so beautifully live.
I don't do many lifestyle sessions. I think it's because not a lot of people think of them as an option. The whole feel of "from the outside looking in" is a little foreign to traditional portraiture but I'm going to be SURE to do it again, and again, very, very soon.
In my opinion, it truly captures who you are. No who you wish to be, but who you so truthfully and honestly are, and that's awesome because maybe you don't know what that looks like from the outside. Or.... it may change one day and you'll want to remember what it felt like to live like this, forever.
This session was a breath of fresh air. It was SO easy going, so truly enjoyable.
It also helps that Bre is the kindest woman you'll probably ever meet and Josh is the raw and original talent behind As Fall Leaves. Then there is Mason. This boy is the sweetest, most worldy little guy I've ever met and I could totally hang out with him and just chat away.
Just to switch things up a bit we finished up our coffee and headed down to the newly built River Walk. I must say- Blue Water Area- bravo. This area right by the St. Clair River is gorgeous and true to it's history. Canada makes a nice looking backdrop back there too. ;)
