Anni Powell Photography is moving to Whidbey Island this August! Click HERE for more info
We battled mosquitoes, rain, mud and high tide, but that didn’t stop this amazing couple from going with the flow and accepting that about their session, because its Guam… and that my friends is what I love about this couple.
Emily and Kyle are such a sweet couple, and an adventurous one at that! Their love for one another did not hide when I pulled out my camera, in fact I think it came out more. I am so glad that I was able to photograph them before I move to Whidbey Island in a month, (wow a month, shew I can’t believe it is almost a month). They also brought along their lovely fur baby Kona, who I might add is SUPER adorable. I love when clients bring their dogs, because they are family too and deserve to be apart of the pretty picture.
When I say we battled mosquitoes, rain, mud and high tide, I was not kidding. As soon as we got back into the woods, bugs attacked. I had taken my bug spray out of my bag for some reason and theirs was practically empty so that made us move a little more quickly. But you would never guess that was an issue. Then about 30-45 minutes in, the rain came in. As the rain came in, we took cover in our cars. Finally the sun came back out and left us with mud. Most clients would have been upset with the mud, especially with their dog all in it, but not Emily and Kyle. The literally stayed cool and calm about it. Then of course, when we got to our final little beach location, it was high tide, but yet Emily and Kyle went with the flow and were just excited about it all. It made my job so easy! These two were so comfortable with anything and everything including each other.
Oh and lets not forget about how cute Kona is, she loved all the exploring around too!
I have been soaking up as much as I can with photographing Guam by trying to switch it up with different locations. I know when I move to Whidbey Island, my scenery will change, and although Washington is beautiful and I am so excited to move there, Guam is where I’ve grown as a photographer and I will miss all the beauty this island has to offer.
Soon when I get to Whidbey Island, when I look back on Guam I will smile and know how much I grew as a photographer. I can’t wait for my new journeys in the Pacific North West, but soaking up every second of this little island under the sun.
