It is my immense pleasure to introduce you to Katy and Chad!. Katy and Chad are our next-door neighbors to the west. They have a 23-month old husky named Mac (he and Jackson are the same age, so he gets to count in months for now, too!) and have been a great to have right next door for the past couple of years. Bonus fact: Katy is the Neighborhood Association president, and everyone knows it’s good to be “in” with the prez!
When talking about what they wanted in an engagement shoot, one thing become quickly apparent: Katy is not a mid-MO native, and has a bit stronger love for all things winter than the average girl I’ve encountered. So, yes, snow was going to be a must. Which at that point in late January/early February was starting to look like more and more of a long shot!
But wait we did, and we were fortunate to get a fairly big snowfall toward the end of the month…and then came the logistics of timing. Between 3 day jobs, the sun setting too dang early, and one unfortunate stomach bug…there we were on a Friday morning at 7AM!
Let me just start by saying, if you know me at all, then you know that I’m not so much a morning person. (Even post-Jackson, which I think is a lingering source of disappointment for my husband, but I digress.)
So. 7AM on the [day following the] coldest day of the year, we found ourselves on the campus of Stephens College for a [quick but efficient] photo shoot. And they. were. troopers. Not one complaint about the cold and just the cutest couple 🙂 (I may or may not have had an issue with a “frozen” vocabulary that morning, resulting in excessive use of the word “cute”…but hey, it was true!)
Anyway, enough with the chit-chat…let’s get to the photos already!
I love this series where they were just making each other laugh!
Meet Mac. He’s a snow pup, and was so much fun! Love how he’s looking back over his should at “Mom and Dad” like “Am I doing this right? Why is she clicking in my face?”
Thanks for the best time I’ve had in the snow before 8AM all winter…and ever! Looking forward to [a warmer time in] October!
