Kia contacted me months ago with the idea of doing some fun portraits for her upcoming 40th birthday! With all the chaos of the holidays and the fact that her birthday is actually in January we decided to do the session after the New Year and before her birthday. In the planning phase we bounced around a ton of ideas and ultimately landed on balloons and the fun of letting them go, because she was letting go over her 30's and turning 40. It ended up perfect and so much fun. We chose to shoot in the South End area for the vibe and look Kia was wanting. We started around Atherton Mill and ended by the light-rail. The whole session was loads of fun and I can't wait to do it all over again soon!
