When I offered the associate photographer position to Brandi, our lives were absolutely crazy! She had just recently moved to Manhattan and I was in the process of moving out of Manhattan, but I really wanted to do a dedicated training session for her to go over a few techniques and things that she could try on her own shoots. Luckily, Brandi’s amazingly beautiful family was coming into town to visit so we set up a mini family shoot plus a senior session for her sister, Morgan!

I took the Nebraskans to the always picturesque Konza Prairie and it was a gloriously beautiful and surprisingly not unbearably hot summer day! We wandered around on the trails and alternated between shooting the entire family, Morgan’s senior pics and then I snagged a few of just the parents! So the Daberkows are freakin hilarious. Seriously. Totally insulting each other the entire time and always laughing and having a great time! Not to mention, I’ve never seen parents of 20+ years show so much love and consideration for each other. Super cute. You’ll see. I’ll prove it!

With Brandi, I went over lighting, posing and camera setting techniques. We shoot in all Manual which takes a while to get comfortable with, but Brandi has really picked up on things very quickly and she continues to bring an awesome new perspective for La Brisa Photography!

Thanks again everyone for the fun shoot! Can’t wait to see you all again! 🙂

Enjoy the photos!

Forgot to mention that we started out with the freakin adorable Jezebelle!

This was my first shoot using the Canon 135 f/2 L lens and it is incomparable. Unbelievable sharpness and quality…not to mention the gorgeous model, Morgan!

The beautiful family

Ok, now prepare yourselves because all parents should be this much in love and affectionate!
