Photographing Charlotte. Another one with Star Potential

This week I had a great time photographing Charlotte. I choose to make it a relaxing session taking very much a consultative approach. Together we worked through the session as a team and not just a photographer and subject. And the results, I feel, are spectacular. For me it is my best work to date and I can't wait to see how some of these images fair in the SWPP's monthly competition. The image above is by far my favorite. And I can't wait to get the sample for the studio. I am pleased with all aspects from composition to lighting and expression. In fact I absolutely love most of the images with the hoody.

I Can't Believe How Long its Been

Well I had intended on keeping up with my blog a little better than I have been lately but time has just moved too quickly this spring. There just isn't enough hours in the day to keep up with everything. So what have I been up to? Well, we've done more Clique parties, baby shoots (which I will have photos to add soon), a ruby anniversary portrait, and much more. We've been to the Mayor's ball, been helping out with the Burbage Carnival and working on a number of events for the near future. We have a couple of things we are working on that I can't wait to reveal but until I am a little further along in the process I don't want to spill the beans. But I am really excited about the possibilities for the future and will share it here as soon as possible. I should have a number of things to post in the next few weeks. So please keep coming back. This is a very exciting time for us.
