Brandon just turned 30 and wanted to celebrate with a portrait session by the lakefront. He chose this location because he loves to spend time there in the summer. The only issue with this is that his birthday was in April and, unfortunately, we had to reschedule our shoot a few times before we found a bright, sunny day. (Wisconsin weather is so fickle, isn't it?)
But, I really love the fact that Brandon chose to do this! I think it's really important to document our lives, outside of the big classics: graduations and weddings. Think about some of your favorite photographs of your loved ones. Some of mine include an amazing photo of my mother as a young woman, posing adorably on a rock in Puerto Rico; another is of my young dad and some cousins working on a classic car.
Speaking of cars, Brandon wanted to incorporate his beautiful convertible into some of the shots.
Sometimes it's important to pause a moment and reflect on where we are NOW. Today. Stop and look back at how far we've come.
Let's celebrate ourselves.
Happy Birthday Brandon!
