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!

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!
