Portraits 12 – 13 / 29: Jesse & Lindsy

Posted on: Tuesday, April 28, 2015

I met up with Jesse and Lindsy¬†at Lindsy’s house on a Sunday morning back in mid-March. We started with some portraits in the side and front yards. Their hedgehog, Kevin, was there too. In between pictures, Kevin ate meal worms and explored. At one point he burrowed into a corner in the front yard and had to be gently prodded out. He was a little grumpy, but to be fair, the portraits were taken in the middle of his night (he’s nocturnal). Jesse and Lindsy were not grumpy. They were easygoing, and fun, and photogenic.

I’ve known Jesse and Lindsy for just about as long as I’ve lived in Santa Cruz. Jesse started his PhD program at the same time as Christian. He’s from Colorado. Lindsy grew up in Los Gatos (just “over the hill” from Santa Cruz). The two of them ended up in Santa Cruz but they actually met in Hawaii. They are both animal whisperers. And explorers. They hike and rock climb and scuba dive and go tide pooling. They are also good at making stuff (Lindsy once made Jesse an impromptu Shark-nado costume the day of Halloween and it was pretty awesome).

We ended with some portraits at a nearby school, which was perfect for reasons you will see towards the end of this post. I don’t know if it was the morning light or the presence of Kevin the hedgehog or the fact that I’m starting to get more comfortable taking portraits, but I’m really happy with how these photos turned out. It’s probably just Jesse and Lindsy. These two have chemistry. And these photos make me happy.

Here are my favorites from our morning with Kevin (there are a lot of them):
