the last couple of weeks have been very exciting for me.
i have been hired by several families
to shoot their family photos.
this is a dream come true for me.
just everything all wrapped up in one.
i have felt very awkward taking money from friends.
worried they won't like their finished product.
i have been very nervous about venturing out into the big world of photography
photographing others for sure.
but i'm going to spend the next several months talking, praying & dreaming.
maybe all this can roll into something new for me.
i have a long long long way to go
& much to learn.
a few weeks ago i took smk & her bff out to a location
to check lighting & such in preperation to shoot these families.
in 3 different shoots
at the exact same time of day
i had 3 seriously different weather elements to work with.
the girls...cloudy day , warm, no breeze
2 days later, i shot the family i'm sharing with you today
& major dark clouds were looming.
we had no sooner put the velvet chair in my garage
when the rain started.
a few days later i shot two more families-
super bright glare on the water,freezing & quite blustery.
i wanted to share my first venture -
this gorgeous family is very dear to me.
the younger daughter has a very special place in my heart
so i was thrilled to work with them.
here are a few from that day~
