Shots and Thoughts

Photos and comments as I explore my passion for photography. Written to and for myself as a journal to track major moments and minor observations as I continue to evolve my visual art. 

47 Years Together

A delight shooting a dear friends family this weekend. A close group anchored by the grandparents, now married 47 years (with many more to come!).

Pro tip: I am really proud of the final images for several reasons. First, they turned out exactly like I thought they would prior to shooting. I saw the final images in my mind and made that happen in camera. Including setting up a small studio in their garage to capture this shot. When this pre vision is carried through till the finished product, that is being an experienced professional. Secondly, I was sick as a dog with a bad cold caught after some major dental work. I could have easily cancelled this session, but a pro steps in, steps up and delivers. Boom.

Too bad the NFL MVP didn't step up at the Super Bowl...
