Being a “lifestyle” photographer, I get the chance to observe and photograph so many stages of life… From a 2-week old newborn, to a couple celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. With each stage comes a different level of comfort with one’s self, and with me as a photographer. Capturing these different changes and stages is one of the things I love most about my job. This morning’s senior picture shoot was exactly one of those photo session that I love… Alexis is a knock-out, but not quite aware of it yet. She has the fun and easy-going nature of a girl, and the subtle sophistication of a woman. She’s past that awkward stage of fake smiles and self-consciousness, and was so confident in herself. It was so much fun to work with her and we got some GREAT shots!
Many of you may know that I teach at Hathaway Brown School… Photo, of course!
Well, yesterday my two lives crossed paths when one of my Advanced Photo students came into the studio for her senior pictures! It was so fun getting to photograph her– not only because she’s gorgeous, but because over the past year and a half I’ve gotten to know her, and was able to use this to increase her comfort level, which led to even better photos! Plus, if she didn’t listen to my posing suggestions, I could threaten her with an F! Oh, I’m just kidding!!
Here’s one of my favorites from her photo shoot!
August was a great month– filled with weddings, lots of pregnancy and newborn sessions, and tons of family photos, both in the studio and outdoors with natural light! Here is a slideshow featuring a little bit of every photo session from August 2009. Can’t wait to see what September brings…!
