Even though I have been a photographer for over 10 years now, I know my family is awkward when a camera is pointed at us.  It's like we don't know what to do and it cannot be over soon enough.  This feeling reminds me how important it is for a photographer to make clients feel at ease and themselves throughout the shoot.  Well, when I get a couple like Valor and Cherish who are too sweet for words and know how to be relaxed in front of a camera, my creativity can roll and I start to see new things unfold before me...lighting, textures, unique spots, etc.  Needless to say, being with these two on Saturday was a treat for me.  They are amazing...and beyond photogenic!
