I have some really beautiful family members and I use them as models as often as I can. So when its snowing and I need a last minute model to help me bring a vision to life I grab my sister and make her stand out in the cold for a few minutes. Now I am not a fan of the cold so I tend to avoid going outside as much as I can when it is snowing. I grew up in southern California where it rarely snows. My sister just moved here to Colorado and loathes the snow as well. But snow makes an absolutely gorgeous back drop so we both got over our issues with it for a few minutes to capture these gorgeous shots. And when I say a few minutes we were literally out there less than 5 minutes and then ran inside to warm up. I love the look of the falling snow so it is one of my goals to embrace the winter this year and get as many snow shoots in as I can. Maybe my sister will gain a little more love for the snow too.
My niece Hailey is another one of my favorite subjects. She is the oldest daughter of my other sister Michelle. She has such a silly personality and looks a lot like me and my sisters when we were her age.
