Kaylee and Michael are goofballs.
But you wouldn't know that when meeting them for the first time. Two professionals in their twenties....this couple knows how to work hard and laugh hard. They rock the 'smise' model face while still laughing about their month of Pokemon Go life. Quite fitting, as we walked through the beautiful lawn and academic are of the Lynchburg College campus, which is also a Pokemon Go 'haven' of sorts.
I have known Kaylee for almost 2 years! As the project coordinator for my full time job as a photographer at Liberty University, I get to work with her 8 hours a day...5 days a week! So, its always a great idea to know your co-workers a bit, because they become your family.
Sometime in the early months of my employment in the winter of 2015-16 Michael started dropping by with Chick-Fil-A, and offering Kaylee the kind words and encouragement that she needed. While Kaylee laughed it off, we could all see that Michael liked her and it wasn't long before they were an official couple. Learning about Michael through Kaylee's little snippets of conversation made our little family love him all the more. A talented musician and rapper, Michael was the fun and laid back personality that a made Kaylee relax and enjoy the small things. He also made her laugh....and that's a big part of who they are!
Kaylee has asked before our session that the photos be "fun and fancy", so what did I do? I made sure good spirits and lots of laughs were happening. Kaylee even took off her shoes for a few of the above shots. We also made sure to use the gorgeous Jeffersonian architecture of Lynchburg College to emphasis their beautiful ensembles, and give that professional look that they were looking for. Check out these models...
And can we also talk about how slick this suit looks on Michael? Dang.
I loved shooting this beautiful Lynchburg College Campus session. Any other Lynchburg College Alumni out there? I live right around the corner from this beautiful spot, and I can't wait to explore it more in the future. Headshots, anyone?
Thanks again Kaylee and Michael!
