Rebekah likes Lord of the Rings. I mean, she really likes Lord of the Rings. So much so that in our first emails to each other, she asked about incorporating her Lord of the Rings sword into the photo shoot.

Lord of the Rings? I’ve never read the books or seen the movies. A sword? This was new territory for me. I admit I was a little tentative as to how to approach this shoot, but I’m always up for a new challenge.

As it turns out, I had nothing to be concerned about. Rebekah totally owned the sword and chose a great look to complement her treasured prop and LOTR necklace. 

I had a blast working with Rebekah and her mom. Rebekah had been referred to me, but it felt like I had known the two of them for years.
