This week I managed to find a break in the rain, and worked in a really sweet senior session as the sunlight was getting warm toward the end of the day. Deshaughna, a 2014 Lake Steven’s High School senior, was super fun to work with. That always helps make magic happen. Check out the photos from her session! We even snuck in a picture with her mom.
Because I said so. The End.
Alright, I’ll be serious. Well, not sarcastic at the very least. That’s all I can promise.
Okay. Okay. OKAY! I know that it is still September… But in all fairness, I started getting pumped up for Christmas back in July. And no, I’m not referring to that ironic “Christmas in July” thing, I mean really truly being ready for Christmas. So forgive me my punny title. But this girl is going through withdrawals. So, I’ve included a couple photos from Christmas theme events… just because they were awesome! (And yes, I am part of the problem.)
I love black and white photos. My walls are covered with them. Don’t mistake this to mean that I think color photographs are second best, because I love color too. However, there is just something about a well done black and white image that speaks to my soul. Black and white photography was where I learned to be more than just a snapshot photographer, and it has always been a part of how I look at the world when I am photographing it, even when I am working in color.
I can’t count how many times I’ve heard that now, or some variant of it. Undoubtedly, at some point during the day of the wedding, I will hear it. It may be a thankful bridesmaid who can’t quite figure out a bustle, a bride thankful that baby wipes are generally good at getting dirt off of hemlines, or a groom that doesn’t know which side the boutonniere is supposed to be pinned on (the left). They always seem so amazed, like I’m some magical fountain of knowledge.
