Senior Portrait Shoot

I had the fun and awesome experience of shooting a friends daughter this afternoon for some of her Senior Portraits. This girl was organized and ready for her pictures, she has an amazing personality and knew what she wanted out of the shoot. We did the shoot at a local nursery where her mom works, perfect backdrop for fun outdoor pictures. Here are a few sneak peeks at what I did this afternoon...enjoy!

I have been drooling over a new camera bag for several years now, I fell head over heels for all of the bags at epiphan!e This year I bought one! I got the Lyric in Slate Blue, it is roomy and stylish and perfect for me. The outside is this fantastic synthetic leather, weatherproof and easy to wipe clean. The inside is soft and well cushioned with re-positional velcro padded dividers. I can carry my camera with 1 lens attached, a spare lens, battery pack, lens cleaner kit, wallet, car keys there is even a pocket for an ipad (if I had one). I am so happy with this purchase, my camera will be going everywhere with me from now on!

I had a fun and damp, chilly, windy night out taking photo's of Neon signs with my dear friend Rachel and my new friend Cliff! I really want to do this walking/driving tour of Neon signs again in nicer and dryer weather. It was good practice for taking night shots, I still have so much to learn but practice is key to learning. I hope you enjoy some of these night time shots.
