Justin and I had the chance to photograph Skyler around the streets of Salem. We had a great time with him finding just the perfect spots to represent Skyler. Salem has some of the greatest alleys with all sorts of unique doors and signs. We got lots of unique images that show how fun Skyler is to hang out with. We see Skyler again in the spring to shoot some more senior photos. The next session will be a Mom’s choice session. She will pick the cloths and location. Doing two sessions is a great idea that allows us to capture a senior the way they are when hanging out with friends as well as the more traditional photos that will be framed and hung in the home for years to come.
I have to say, as I was photographing Skyler I was reminded about how much I love my job! It’s something I think about often but this time I thought I would share. It is so much fun photographing people just the way they are and creating images that truly show who that person is during that point in their life. It may be a child seeing new things for the first time, a new family with the laughter of new little ones, a teenager growing into an adult, a newly married couple glowing
with love, or an older couple celebrating 50 years glowing with pride and admiration for one another and I get to capture it all. Wow, it is truly an honor and I thank everyone who lets me capture these moments in their lives. I truly do have a good reason to love my job.
O.K. back to Skyler. I hope you enjoy the photos. We will be seeing you soon to go over your proofs. And thank you for reminding me of why I love what I do.
