I have to extend many thanks to Natalie and Nathan following our recent engagement portrait session together — to Natalie for being adorable, and Nathan for tolerating the pain of the shoot. Not to say that being photographed by me is meant to be an unpleasurable experience. Rather, I prefer to think that my clients have a lot of fun when we work together. But in Nathan’s case, I’m speaking of actually physical pain. First when he was bit in the ass by a frisky goat, and later when he got a large piece of train trestle shrapnel lodged in the palm of his left hand. So to Nathan, I thank you for taking one (or two as the case may be) for the team, and know that your pain did not go without gain — a great body of images.
