The Beller Family

i had the wonderful honor of photographing the beller family… josh, michelle, weston and baby boy in the belly (arriving any day now)!  this sweet husband & wife duo are photographers as well but we actually had never met in person until the shoot – we had only admired one another’s work from afar!  i was a little nervous (photographing other photographers can be incredibly humbling!) but when they stepped out of their car and i saw that both our backseats were covered in crushed cherrios, well, needless to say, we became very fast friends  :)  they wanted to include maps and planes, two of weston’s loves, so we headed to the airfield and broke out our biggest sets of airplane arms and flew all around the vintage planes in the sunshine.  michelle was a champ in her stillettos, 8 months pregnant i might add, josh happily admired his lovely bride and weston just looked dang cute every second of the entire shoot – seriously, this kid is precious.  at the end, we camped out on the grass outside the airfield for a little picnic on the maps, the sun was, by far, the most golden i had seen it in months, and we just  soaked in every last drop of it.  i love this first shot of weston below… it was actually an outtake, just testing my light before we snagged the bottle out of this mouth, but i adore his intensity and how he is just hanging out on top of the world!

    I’ve known Josh since we were about 8yo and although we lost contact after school I’ve seen his business flourish as well. Great to see he and his wife and kid(s) so very happy. You captured them very well. Congrats to them and you.
