Some of you might remember that a few months ago, Monument Graphics hosted a contest with the winner receiving a photo session with me. The random winner was Amber Rich, a student at Mesa State College here in Grand Junction. Just before the contest, she and I had recently become acquainted through Facebook, so it was fitting that fate selected her as the random winner.
Besides being utterly beautiful, Amber is awfully kind. So kind in fact, that she shared her prize with her fiance, Maurice. These were taken just before college graduation. Amber will soon be heading off to sunny Los Angeles to attend USC’s graduate program in public relations, and Maurice will be going to Europe to play basketball.
We were lucky enough that the huge winds that greeted us as we began our shoot quickly slowed to a nice breeze, perfect for Amber’s gorgeous mane.
Maurice is very good at making Amber laugh. He’s also a mean dancer.
I think this man loves this woman. It’s very sweet how he looks at her, especially when she isn’t looking.
These two kids joked around the entire time.
Thanks Amber and Maurice for a lovely evening and I wish you both the best as you go out to carve out your place in the world. For more photos from this session, CLICK HERE for a slideshow.
