Photo 6: Kim and Joey senior session
Taken on June 15, 2010
I don’t like to schedule more than one portrait session in a day.
My style is not anything like the photo booth at Sears. I just don’t work that quickly. Or impersonally. I like to get to know the people I’m photographing a little. Make a connection, if possible. I think it makes for better images.
Sometimes, though, situations come up. You do what you gotta do.
I try to make a couple of trips out to Colorado a year. With June’s trip fast approaching, I contacted my sister. I had already agreed to shoot her senior session. Maybe she has some friends who want to jump on that bandwagon and book some sessions.
What I didn’t count on was it raining almost the entire trip.
One good day. That’s what I was left with. And three senior sessions to shoot. Hello brain melt.
Despite being rushed, a lot of great shots came out of the sessions. This black and white of my sister and her boyfriend is one of my favorites.
Who knew the little girl I once carried on my shoulders during a hike because she didn’t want to walk in the rain would ever be so grown up?
And now this year, she graduates. Crazy sauce.
