bohemian kelly + mati
Denise Andrade aka Boho is magic. She and Thea met us at our cabin, styled Kelly and I, and took us out to a pre-scouted spot in the lush green woods of New Hampshire. Boho created these dreamy photos of us cracking up and seriously proud of one another. We joked that the whole experience of speaking together at Squam felt like getting married... up at the podium all nervous together telling our stories, and that these were our engagement photos! Hugh's jealous. Maybe Denise can take some of H & me soon?
I absolutely love Denise's gentle way of being and photographing. Her new portfolio focusing on artists (patient... it's worth waiting for it to load) is phenomenal. Her way of processing and capturing the shots is most romantic. Or Bohemian?
In Denise's own words about her role as a photographer~ What I loved most about each of these sessions is I witnessed a melting of stress during our time together. Each of them had responsibilities at Squam that were a bit beyond their comfort zone and by the time I was able to steal them away, they needed some nurturing. It felt so good to lay them down in the grass and tell them to breathe and remember that in this moment, they don't have to be anywhere or say anything or think or do or act...but just be still and get filled up by nature and play.
It's not just about capturing their image through my lens. It's about healing and letting go and receiving when my clients tend to give so much. I am honored to offer that solace for them.
Yes, I heart my job.
I heart Boho. Thank you, friend. I'm honored. Soon I'll share more photos from the session from the same day from another talent~ Thea Coughlin.
