Christmas is coming… I’m not ready. I don’t think that there’s been a year that I have been ready for Christmas to come since I was like 10. Back in the day when my Christmas list consisted solely of toys and books and it took the sum total of 15 minutes to find the perfect gift for my parents at the store (i.e. a plaid flannel scarf that I knew my Dad would love and I now wear instead). I miss the simplicity of it all : ) Maybe this will be the first year that I venture into online shopping. As much as I love Christmas, I do not handle the swarms of people and inevitable brawls that ensue in the mall parking lot very well. I think the comfort of my home with a hot cup of peppermint tea and my computer sounds way better this year… I’ll let you know how it goes : )
I did Jenny and Travis’ engagement session at the end of October on a very windy, cold day with periodic spitting rain. It was one of those days that reaffirms the fact I live in Ohio… and that there is in fact no rhyme or reason to the way each season unfolds here. We went to the Yellow Springs/Clifton area and that morning someone told me that they were organizing the biggest thriller dance in Ohio or something like along those lines that day in Yellow Springs. Apparently they were going to do the dress rehearsal in the streets. As much I really wanted to see that, I was glad to find out that it was on another day or in a different place… I don’t even remember I was just happy to be able to drive on the streets!
This was my first experience with having a motorcycle as a part of the session and it was a lot of fun! And Jenny and Travis played the parts very convincingly : ) I loved the lights hanging outside at this restaurant called Peaches and it worked out so it was the last place we went… so the lights were lit and it was just dark enough to be the perfect setting. These two are a really really sweet couple and I’m so excited for their summer wedding! I hope you enjoy your pictures and slideshow!
