The Smiths | Esther Pederson Photography

It’s always fun to meet new people. Meeting Mel and Aidan were no exception. They are young, fun, beautiful and happy. I had so much fun capturing their free spirits and hope they had fun as well. Now it wasn’t exactly picture taking weather when we started out (unless you are dressed like a marshmellow in winter gear). Right before I headed out, the thermometer read 20 degrees (at 10am), and I knew it was colder because of the wind. But Mel showed up at my front door looking cute AND stylish!! I was pretty impressed right from the get go. (I only felt slightly guilty wearing my comfy fleece gear and thermal underwear) :) Well, as the morning went on, and as we headed to lower ground and out of the snow, it was actually pretty comfortable and we got some grrrrreaaat shots. They brought along their cute dog, Coho, who is totally photogenic as well! She was so cute as a matter of fact, I almost wanted to stash her in my camera bag and take her home. lol. Well, just as quickly as I met them, they will be leaving our small town and on to new adventures. Best of luck to you three, and I am so glad we fit a session in before you all left. I’ll be in touch soon with more proofs!

These are so pretty, and they don’t look cold at all! Love their outfits and the backlighting in the first one!

What a cute couple! And that dog is one of the cutest ones I’ve seen. Great job.

Very pretty – it really looks like they had fun! Funny on the weather – I think we’re still in the 80s in Houston.

Love these shots – especially the picture framed ones… actually, all of them. How do you mesmerize the dogs – really, how do you do it? Every time I try to photograph a dog, when I get down to their level, they come running.

You got such sweet interaction/connection in your composition with the 2 of them! And the backlighting in the first is gorgeous! I love the frame idea, too!
