Erik + Misha

Meet my husband’s BFF and his soon-to-be awesome wife. They did great during their session. They held all of the 500 two minute long kissing poses I made them do without one complaint. I honestly think they kinda liked it 😉 They also put up with me saying “just one more” 6,000 times. Even after they found out that “one more” really meant “50 more”. And when I said we were done, drove 10 minutes towards home then veered off the road to another picture location for 20 more pictures, they still didn’t mind. Thanks you two for being so laid back and for putting up with me. I had a great time. Let’s just hope my “accidental” vandalism didn’t get caught on surveillance tape and Misha doesn’t get West Nile!

P.S. Be sure not to miss the very last picture 🙂

Later that night after pictures were really done ;), Erik used the word “lucky” quite a bit as he raved about Misha to Matt and I. I’m glad I used it as a backdrop!

I got a little experimental with my camera settings.

**In their defense — I will say that I made them do the silly poses below 🙂 I’m glad I did too because their pretty funny. I love Misha’s far left pose and Erik’s jump.

Drum roll………

Yay! What a wonderful surprise ending. Well….a surprise to you, my blog readers. Not to Erik and Misha. These two eagerly planned for this sweet baby. They couldn’t be more excited to be parents. And they are going to be great ones! They’re already naturals. Saturday morning I woke up and walked in to my living room to find that Misha had already gotten Mia out of her crib, changed her diaper, gotten her sippy cup and was turning on cartoons. It was awesome. We might have to have them up more often so we can sleep in. 😉 HA! Just kidding. No not really.

Congrats again you two!

Maternity & newborn pictures coming soon……..

OK, I’ll straighten up now and get back to the ooogling of your fabulous work and what a gorgeous couple they are! Seriously! Hugs from Conroe, TX

  • spark - Honestly Johanna, your work is just stunning. You have some beautiful subjects to work with of course but your composition is so so lovely and your photos just jump with LIFE!!! Wish I lived nearby or vice versa rather than on the other side of the world so I could beg you to take some photos of my little family. What beautiful photos to treasure for Misha, Erik, their child (and their future generations!!!). You are amazingly talented. LOVE that last photo. How on earth did you find such awesome backgrounds!!! You have inspired me (as usual!)

  • johanna - Thank you so very much for the lovely compliments Spark. 🙂 I truly appreciate it.

  • johanna - Thank you Nancy. Hopefully one day I will get to meet you and take your picture!

  • Tara - You are so talented! What a great session and cute couple.

  • Ali - Johanna – Your photos are gorgeous! Where in Austin do you find the “Butter Half” mural and “Coming Soon” painted arrow?
