Sonora Photographer | Playful Couple Session | Christine Dibble Photography
I have three boys. They rarely like to be photographed. In fact, it usually takes some serious bribes, lots of stern words to “quit putting your brother in a headlock!”, and countless images where one or all are making awful faces or looking thoroughly bored. So when Colby’s girlfriend offered to model for me anytime (She was perfect here), I was excited to finally have someone feminine to photograph! We were just going to go play with the camera one day, but Colby couldn’t let his mother get to spend time with his girl without him along. So the day turned into a playful couple session instead. We played around in the studio first, just pulling items from my closet and vintage stash to mimic June and Johnny Cash and Grease. Then we headed to a wooded location in Twain Harte to take some outdoor portraits. Colby was very happy to dress up and play whatever part we gave him. We even found half a stick-on mustache on his vest and worked with that! When I shoot his senior portrait session in a couple of months, I will definitely be bringing Julian along, just to keep him happy!
