Matthews, NC: Matt’s Summer Portrait Session

My husband, Matt, hates having his photo taken.  As soon as a lens is pointed his direction, he protests, “The camera is stealing my smile!” Despite his deep-rooted reservations about being photographed, Matt has truly surprised me lately by offering repeatedly to pose for me. He is supportive of my career aspirations, and his encouragement + help are ever-present -even if it means he is a bit uncomfortable!

We had a mini session in Matthews, NC on a balmy late summer evening. Low-pressure sessions like these allow for experimentation -perfect for fostering creativity to help me grow as an artist. My goal was to create a nice collection of authentic portraits in a variety of lighting situations.

There’s a little pathway in the Windsor Square shopping plaza that is adorned with lush greenery + usually vacant.

I took the opportunity to experiment with some tricky lighting, and think the results are both playful + striking!

I think Matt is my most handsome portrait subject, but maybe I’m biased?
