Snow Portraits

I’ve been giving some thought to doing portraits this winter. Plenty of people love winter and all the snow filled fun that comes with it. The more I think of it, the better it sounds. Why not take photos of people in the winter environment they love so much?

I had the chance this past weekend when we went out to the lake for the Thanksgiving long weekend. It snowed. It snowed a boatload! So, other than building a snow family, I took photos.

I think, given the results I got this past weekend in the snow, I’m going to make a push for some paid gigs this winter and hopefully people will respond well.

What? Olympic what? Haha. I have a group of friends who are a little on the insane side I believe. They have decided that this is the only way to go down a snow covered hill.

Ok, here is the hill.

Does it get any crazier than that?
