Justin is a Navy man home on leave for two weeks and happily reunited with his girlfriend of 3 years, Amanda, and his family. I had the pleasure of photographing the two of them this afternoon in an unbelievable outdoor setting.
Justin is also the brother of one of my previous Teen Identity models, Olivia. Since Justin is home for such a short time, he and Olivia’s mom wanted to capture some images of Justin and his girl, as well as some family shots of her children.
I scouted the scene beforehand, choosing locations in the shade since we were shooting at 130 pm in bright sunlight. I know I said I don’t like photographing in the hot, humid summer weather of Atlanta, but today I made an exception. I couldn’t have been more thrilled when I stumbled upon this one green scene hidden away behind a building… I knew it was perfect for a quiet moment between a reunited couple.
