A few weeks back, I did my first Senior photo session. I have people ask me all the time to take their family photos, wedding photos, etc. While it's something I have under serious consideration for the future, right now it's just not something I feel like God has in His plan for me. I know a lot of people who love photography, start businesses, and end up burned out very quickly because the time commitment doesn't work with their family's lifestyle. I don't want that to be the case for me. I (hopefully!) have plenty of years of child-free years ahead of me when I can do photography the way I want to do it.
I also know I still have a lot to learn. Posing people and styling photos doesn't come naturally to me and it's something I'll need to really work on. And I want to take some Photoshop classes. And I can't do it all with my 50mm lens. And my little beat up Nikon D80 is almost 5 years old. And . . . you get my point! My heart isn't in it right now.
Every once in awhile I let someone talk me into doing photos for them. And I just couldn't say no to this girl. Kaelie is my friend Kelly's daughter.
And as you can see, she's GORGEOUS.
She's actually a GORGEOUS TOMBOY. She and Caelan used to race together but they've both moved on to different kinds of race cars.
And a few more that I've edited.
Thanks Kaelie and Kelly for letting me get a little experience under my belt!
