2010 Retrospective – Part 6

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.
