Note: Before we even start, I’d like to say happy belated birthday to Spencer! Yesterday was his birthday and I’ve waited since last year to release this shoot with him and his lovely girlfriend who is also a Chicago photographer. Spencer is one of the most kind and genuine people I’ve ever met. He’s also the creator of Heavy Horns, a custom battle jacket collection. (He made my black and purple jacket.)
Spencer and Janet
Firstly, as a Chicago photographer I must say that this is the first time another Chicago photographer has approached me and let me tell you… It was amazing! Janet knew where she wanted her shoot to be, her poses, etc. It was glorious! I advise everyone to shoot with another photographer at least once.
Secondly, can I admit that I love the contrast in their style? Janet has the cute little side cut and Spencer has this badass septum in his nose! Here they are doing this adorable Hallmark card photoshoot where she’s wearing a dress full of bows and he’s wearing a leather jacket… I mean, this is just timeless!
I also got to meet their adorable and energetic little puppy Mia who is so cute with her little one eye. Needless to say, I was in love!
They’re adorable right?! So here’s my favorite part of the shoot where they sort of do this amazing match. Janet’s wearing skull stockings and Spencer’s wearing a skull shirt. You can tell it by his eyes, but Spencer’s had enough of these photos and has his own idea. ..
He picked her up and pretty much ran away with her. Mini session time was over! Which is absolutely adorable. I mean, really.. How many of us can get a guy to stand still long enough to have a mini session so adorable that it could’ve ended up on a punk Hallmark card? I can’t believe I’m totally 24 hours late on this but HAPPY BIRTHDAY SPENCER! This will be one of the most memorable sessions I’ve had for a long time.
Are you ready for a session?
