i <3 faces - no flash

I have been watching from a distance the past few weeks as i heart faces has been popping up in the blogs I read, so I decided to finally join in.

This week the challenge is no flash.

While I have been using lights almost all winter long, I have had the opportunity to get outside a couple times and use the beautiful natural light! I love love love natural light. I would not dare categorize myself as a natural light photographer as I still rely on lights a lot of the time. Maybe someday I can be cool enough to do everything with natural light... or at least make my stuff look like natural light ;)

While there are two categories, one for adults and one for kids, I am only entering the adults category.

This picture is taken from an engagement session I did about 2 weeks ago for my upcoming first wedding! I have had such an amazing experience with this girl that I am about ready to make it a requirement that a couple do their engagement session with me before their wedding. She is so much more excited about her pictures now that she's gotten a sneak-peek as it were :)

When this picture was taken, she was talking on and on about how silly she probably looked and I said, no way, you look soooo cute! and then she laughed, and I got it. I don't even think she knew I clicked at that moment, but guess which picture ended up being the fave? ;)

If you would like to join in or check out other entries, just go over here and check it out.
