I headed out to Watertown, MN on Mother’s Day to meet Sarah and Krist. We had spoken briefly on the phone and exchanged several emails. I was excited to meet them as well as finally see some of Watertown as I had never been there.
I was meeting them at Sarah’s Grandfather’s farm which has been in the family for several generations. I had no idea what to expect… which as a photographer can make things quite interesting. I was very excited once I saw the farm and truth be told we only used a small portion of all that was available to us there in regards to settings. Another hour or two would have been fun.
Sarah, Krist, Sarah’s Mom and I sat in the house for awhile just talking and getting to know each other. It was a neat rustic farm house… it felt like home by anyone’s standards. I won’t go into the long version but Sarah and Krist had worked with another photographer already so while I was excited to work with them I also knew they had a good idea of what they wanted and I wanted to provide that for them.
I absolutely loved this session. Sarah and her Mom breed Australian Shepherds (you can visit their website here) and so they wanted to have one of them in some of their photographs. I had no idea how beautiful these dogs are and was blown away when I got to meet Minty. Her eyes were amazing and she was so much fun to include in the shoot.
It was a pleasure meeting Sarah and Krist as well as some of their family that afternoon. Minty won my heart over… if I did not have cats I’d get a dog just like her. I look forward to Sarah and Krist’s wedding later this Summer/Early Fall.
