I met Shandiin and Kaene at a barbecue birthday party. My husband started talking with them. And they immediately opened up to us even though we bombarded them with questions. Haha. The more we spoke with them, I knew I needed to photograph them. I asked if they were interested in being my models and they quickly answered, “Yes! We love to!” I told them that I love their sense of style. Shandiin and Kaene were wonderful to work with. I gave little instruction and they naturally knew the photos I was after. I love it when couples just know. Makes my job easy to do and a lot more fun! I also love how they are proud of their Diné (Navajo) heritage. They speak the language too! Love. I found another book of poems by Mary Oliver and this reminds me of Shandinn and Kaene. Enjoy!
