My phone buzzes. I've received an inquiry. I nearly drop my phone when I read the contents: Martina was contacting me to find out if I would be able to capture her story through a lifestyle session. She included the words skateboards, beach cruisers, jeep, and surfboards in the first email and I knew right then and there that this would be an AWESOME session - and it was! I like to spend several hours with my clients when we are doing a lifestyle session because I want to get to know them so that I can really capture their essence on camera. A few hours in, my subjects have begun to trust me and it's visible in the photos. I'm not sure if we spent more time taking pictures or babbling between ourselves because I'm pretty sure we became instant besties. I'm so grateful that Martina selected Snaps by SO for this special project and wish her the best tidings on her adventurous move to Hawaii next year!
