Love Story at Overland Park between Kansas and Missouri
Overland Park is a chic suburb of Kansas City where I had the pleasure of making a lovely Love Session on the site of a beautiful botanical park.
I had landed two days earlier at the Kansas City airport where the instructions and security measures were very far removed from those which the American authorities generally imposed on foreigners.
The heat was absolutely stifling well beyond the 40 ° in the shade. The relentless sun and abominable humidity made the many rare species dotted in the four corners of the park suffer as much as my young and charming models. So we looked for the most shady and remote parts of the park before finding some suitable spaces to find a little privacy and especially freshness.
At the bend of a path, a small bridge surrounded by trees already quite attacked by the rampant vegetation, immediately made me think of some plans and landscapes of a movie of Clint Eastwood "On the way to Madison". Moreover the whole of this session and all this afternoon there leaves me a memory close to the soft and nostalgic atmosphere of this film. I met again for the occasion April and Antoine of which an overview of the French part of the marriage a few months ago in Grenoble is to see on this same blog. We originally planned to do this session in the Alps before we went to the Commandery, but circumstances had decided otherwise. So after the wedding we decided to meet a few months later in the days that were to precede the second part (American this time) of marriage.
The more we advanced in that end of the day the light was beautiful and shimmering to my great satisfaction. The very Middle West atmosphere of the venue gives this session a small provincial and vintage side even though I did not eventually fall into ease with a treatment of the same name or style.
As often in such cases it is certainly this session that will remain for me the best memory of all these many moments spent with April and Antoine and their many friends during these almost two years since our first meeting.
