I recently had the pleasure of photographing lil Russi’s parents Shani and Russ. You may remember Russi from an earlier post when we did the kids tutu shoot as she was one of the models for that campaign.
She was the one that her mother (Shani) had to bribe with Toys R Us to get her to pose for the final images of that day. Well Shani said that her and Russ haven’t had photos done in a while and since I was offering a mini session she thought it would be great to take advantage of the promotion and have some images done of her and her husband.
We originally wanted to shoot at Alapocas Run State park but due to the entrance (the one we all use) was closed off we switched and decided to head to Brandywine Creek Park. Which in turn ended up being the perfect backdrop for our images. Plus it’s always a please to work with a couple who’s love is so evident from the time you see them together. Russ is fond of his queen as Shani has no problem showing the world how much she adores her king.
And in this day and age of disposable relationships it’s awesome to see two people who love each other and have fun with one another and isn’t afraid to show the world that black love is alive and kicking in 2015.
Check out some of the images from this session. And feel free to leave a comment below and check out my other blog entries here on the site
