Celebration Challenge – Day 18 – The Beginning

Tonight I’m celebrating my photography beginning.  I thought it would be fun to go back and look at one of my very first shoots.  Honestly, I had kind of forgotten about this one, but looking at it again tonight I realized that it’s still one of my favorites.

I shot this session about three years ago with my very first SLR, a Sony A100.  I didn’t really know how to work my subject yet with wide and tight shots and I also didn’t really understand lighting.  But, I have to say that this is the session that really started it all for me.

These images remind me how excited I was about photography and that I had finally discovered my passion.  I absolutely LOVED what I was doing and knew I wanted to be a photographer.

Today, I still get just as excited and I still LOVE taking pictures.  I love creating images that are memorable, that capture a moment, that help you see your own beauty … and have a blast doing it.

Book your session today and I’ll do it for you too!

And don’t forget!!  Only 10 more days to take advantage of my Senior Model Call!  Only $99.00 for a full session with 20 digital images.  You don’t have to go with the school’s contracted photographer.  Book a session with me and get gorgeous images you’ll REALLY love!

OMG! I will NEVER forget this session! SO FUN! Running around Wal-mart the night before in the middle of the night trying to get those last few “just right” accessories… traipsing around behind you in the prickly desert and lugging gear, bags, hats, etc, and that giant reflector thing so we could get the “warm light” or “cool light”… sweating our butts off… having a blast… changing outfits and doing hair… cracking up with kayleigh because the giant reflector thing was blinding her and we kept telling her to “STOP SQUINTING!” or “RELAX YOUR FOREHEAD!” but really it was very hard for her to do that… being so excited to see the pics that we loaded them up AS SOON as we got home…!
One of the VERY best times ever… love love loved assisting you on that shoot and others… really wish I could do it more often becuase I love watching and helping you create… it’s such a beautiful and special process. And FUN! 🙂 And, oh how far you’ve come from that early shoot! A.Ma.Zing!
