I am beyond excited to share these photos with you. I had an idea of what I wanted this photo shoot to look like and we were beyond amazed at how beautiful the location, evening, and sunset turned out to be. Emmy’s true beauty really shows in these photos. Humble, gracious, intelligent, selfless, feminine, elegant, adventurous, and full of life! Because Emmy is also trilingual and speaks French, I’ve included an excerpt from Victor Hugo’s poem, Soleils Couchants (Setting Sun). My husband and I recently found a 1935 French Lyrics of the Nineteenth Century book at an antique shop and of course I had to have it. Turns out I found the perfect piece to share from this lovely book. After all, we all love sunsets and as a photographer I now appreciate its beautiful golden light more than I ever thought possible.
