Today shoot was with the wonderful Miss Mikayla. We set up this shoot to take place in a field in Roseville Ca. This turned out to be one of the last days her best friend, and singularly awesome individual, Mar was going to be in town before moving out of state. I was honored to be able to photograph some of the fun that these girls have. They are both lively, funny and kind and I hope some of that comes thorugh in these images. Being able to capture people as they are at that moment in their life is an encouraging process.
This week, I had another chance to shoot with the wonderful Rachel. There is a fun little side street in Old Roseville that has some great colors and textures. Rachel brought her "up for anything" attitude and we had a blast. It's always great to work with someone who is the embodiment of joy. We shot in the alley, dodged a few cars, and had some 'hair flipping' moments. I couldn't ask for a better shoot! Thank you Rachel.
Soft and Sultry was the theme of a meetup I attended in Roseville. There were around 10 models posing in lovely dresses in different settings all waiting to have their picture taken. They sure didn't have to wait long with about 18 photographers around eager to snap them up. This was a curious adventure for me. Each model tries hard to pose and be beautiful, while paying attention to each phototographer clicking away. It was . . . interesting.
Today was my first shoot with someone who wasn't a member of my family. It's a scary thing to start down a path that forces you to share your art with others. What I do, what this path is about, is asking someone to join me in crafting, capturing and sharing special moments. There can be so much fear and doubt in this process for the photographer and client alike.
