This grad was ALL smiles from the moment we met her (and apparently even before we met her!). Her mom got in touch with us a few months ago, and mentioned that Morghan had been through some health struggles lately, and one thing keeping her going was that she was SO excited for her Grad photos, so much more than anything else, and that she wanted US to shoot them-no question. We were so honoured! And excited too!! We just LOVE when we meet people who are just as passionate about getting their photos taken, as we are about taking them. It just makes room for so much creativity when you're after the same goal!
Can I just say, this grad is STUNNING, a natural beauty inside & out (and yes, that's all her natural hair...I asked and admired...and coveted. hahaha).
We met Morghan and her family in their hometown of Richmound, Saskatchewan and followed them out to their Aunt & Uncle's farm. Auntie Joanne had spent so much time getting the place ready for a shoot and was such an accommodating host! THANK YOU JOANNE! Your home is beautiful! A photographer's dream! So many older barns, fences, and vintage vehicles, and even a mini forest and a beautiful pasture. It's got literally every texture and colour you'd want for a shoot.
Morghan is a natural in front of the camera, and we had so much fun making her laugh (very easy), and her and I have the same problem. It always takes a few seconds of intense inner convincing to get a serious face, but she rocked those too! I could never get my serious face down.
Props to Glen, her dad, who gave us a hand with the photos by holding the reflector, the scrim, and making his daughter laugh at all the right times. If you need a reference Glen, we've got your back. ;)
Morghan, we wish you all the best on your ventures to Lethbridge, and we are sending hugs your parents way as we can tell they're gunna miss you sooooo much!
We think you're pretty awesome. ;)
