Those fun, organic, takes in between poses, smiles etc, were eyes closed and laughter happens, a fun place, after all we were at Happy Camp.


It’s understandable to look at pinterest for ideas / inspiration.  My Advice?  find a photographer whose style you are drawn to, then show up to the set, no expectations, ready to let loose, have fun and trust them.Happy_campers_nicole_caldwell_0069_resize


Tiffany is a HUGE fan of everything 70’s and the macrame in the shot is one she personally made.  Sienna won second place in a hula hoop contest, and that ukulele is hers, she was a bit miffed as it was out of tune, which made for some great captures. Sienna injured her foot, and the boot was a wonderful surprise, and a must to stay on for some shots.Happy_campers_nicole_caldwell_0125_resizeHappy_campers_nicole_caldwell_0135_resizeHappy_campers_nicole_caldwell_0189_resize
