Photo shoots can be a little stressful to plan for – putting together outfits in advance, figuring out how to do your makeup, trying to find the perfect locations. I, for one, had never done a photo shoot before, so I was especially nervous when I booked my first shoot with Morgan.
Let me first begin with why I chose Morgan Session Photography. I went to high school with Morgan, and our parents had known each other from high school as well. She was always so sweet to me, and she was one of those people who just got along with everyone. Fast-forward a few years and she is killing it as a photographer in Austin, TX, always posting her incredible work to Instagram and Facebook to share with her followers.
When I first started Chaos and Coffee, I wanted to immediately start out by only posting professional photos on the blog. I mean, if you’re going to do something, do it right… right? So I began searching for photographers online that I liked and who took the kind of pictures I wanted. I really wanted someone who would capture and focus on the fashion aspect while also displaying my personality through the pictures.
Cue Morgan Sessions. I reached out to her this past summer and we had initially planned to meet up in July. Well, I soon realized that with my summer school, work, and travel schedule, fitting in a photo shoot would be a little difficult to do. However, she was so incredibly patient with me and after a few months of planning and trying to make time in both of our busy schedules, we were finally able to meet up and shoot.
Starting out, I was extremely nervous… This was my first time taking pictures with anyone professionally, and I was worried I wouldn’t do something right. I even begged Jordan to hop in and take some pictures with me so I would feel calmer and not as nervous (and I’m extremely glad I did, because now I have some INCREDIBLE pictures of us together to print out!!)
Looking back, I shouldn’t have been nervous at all. Morgan was so patient and made me feel like we were just two friends walking up and down the streets of downtown Austin, taking pics together and having a fun time! She told me exactly what to do and walked me through each step. She had the perfect locations picked out and the pictures turned out even BETTER than I was hoping. The entire experience completely exceeded my expectations and I couldn’t be happier with how the whole thing turned out! If you are ever looking to have pictures taken, I would definitely, 100% recommend Morgan Sessions Photography! I know I sure can’t wait to shoot with her again! 🙂
