Lindsey and Coy

Wow, what an absolutely fantastic day I had last week. Spending the day with friends where you just flow throughout the day is a wonderful experience, especially when it starts with crepes and friendship and ends with sunset on a beach and sunset. Thanks to Lindsey and Coy, I was able to test the processes of a potential day long in-home photo package and create some spectacular photos throughout the day along with two fellow creatives.

Whatever, I’ll live.
