Kate and I had grand plans for updating the photography for her wellness business. We emailed back and forth with tons of ideas, brainstormed lists of props and supplies, and even rented what appeared to be an amazing studio kitchen space for the shoot. On the day of our first shoot together, I showed up to the studio space first and was pretty surprised by what I saw. The kitchen looked nothing like it had in the photos on the studio's website. Not only that, it was dirty. The kitchen sink was full of dirty dishes and people kept walking in and out to make their morning coffee.
Before Kate could get started unpacking everything she had brought for the shoot, I explained the situation to her and we walked in together and decided it definitely wasn't the space we had envisioned for the shoot. Luckily, both of us rolled with it and quickly came up with a plan B. We headed to Kate's place, which had a fabulous kitchen with the most gorgeous light I've ever seen.
Since our shoot, Kate has moved to Japan (how do I end up meeting these people doing so many amazing things?), but luckily, we were able to squeeze one more shoot in together before her big move. We did an outdoor shoot this time and took advantage of the lovely autumn light around the castle district of Budapest. It was much colder than Kate made it look in her gorgeous flowing dress. And, yes, a woman who walked by did insist that we take some photos with her dog. No complaints from me!
Thanks again, Kate! I hope our paths cross again sooner than later.
