Jess Leigh — Artist
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
This session is of Kali + Mitchell, who as you can see, are totally in love. These two have been together since November 14, 2012 and enjoy spending quality time together—outdoors, playing board games as well as spending time with friends. We decided to take their pictures on one of the hottest days of the year here in Edmonton at sunset. A huge goal with my sessions is to break from that awkward barrier of ‘I feel weird having my picture taken’, to a stage where the couple is completely connected and involved with one another and hardly realize that I am there. Once we get into that connection stage, that is where the magic portraits take place. Kali and Mitchell certainly got to this stage in their session and I am so thrilled with how their portraits turned out!
