The Red Jean Diaries

I have known Meg Courtney for a while, through acquaintances and recently (to my serious luck), she has become a very good friend of mine, and her and her husband Scott were one of the main reasons I decided to take this leap (Thanks guys! Man am I ever glad you moved here!!). Now, Meg has a not so secret talent, she is an amazing Wedding & Lifestyle photographer.  She has done photo sessions for quite a few of our friends, and she even did Andy's brother&sister-in-law's wedding in Maui last December. This April, she wanted some help to outfit her brand, and asked me if I would be interested in helping her out. Shopping? I can tell you what to buy?! I'm there. In return, she offered to do a "mini lifestyle" session for Andy & I. Needless to say, I was the real winner of that trade-off, as now I have absolutely stunning photos to hang all around my home. Thankfully for me, Andy is the kind of guy to say to me, "B, I know you already know what I'm wearing, and how you want this to go, so put out what you want me to wear." (smart guy hey?) Meg & I had a really fun vision for this session. I wanted brick, warm light and "fun" shots, and could not wait to show off my coveted red jeans - by "coveted", I mean I searched every single store for a year trying to find a pair of red jeans that didn't make my legs look like cased sausages - . She had the idea to make this look like a date, complete with ice cream and a sunset at the beach. Magic ensued. Okay maybe I'm a bit biased, but seriously, this lady is a camera magician.
