Shane class of {2012}

Over the past few years, I've done pictures of bellies, babies, tutus, and makeup sessions, I took a leap of faith in myself and shot my first wedding in April, but diving into the masculine, AKA seniors who play football, that's a whole different ball game. No pun intended. "Think masculine, strong, powerful shots..." After waiting for the light to get right, I gave myself a small pep talk and grabbed my camera. Ready to jump the fence for the perfect shots on the football field, we got lucky. The field was open. Shane was a good sport and the pictures turned out great! Congratulations Shane, enjoy your senior year!

a {rainy} day with Carsen & John

My first engagment session riddled with challenge, fog turned to rain, cloudy turned to grey, lighting getting dimmer and dimmer by the minute. I was up for the challenge & I think I did pretty good with these two beautiful, lovely young people. The significance of the last picture: John is enlisted and currently stationed in Fort Hood, TX. He flew home for three days to propose to his girlfriend, the next day she found a dress, he tried on tuxes with his buddies, and then they met me downtown for a last minute engagment session.
Congratulations Carsen and John!
