Why I do what I do!

 Memories of loved ones, plain and simple, is why I do what I do.  The main reason I got into photographing weddings was a mystery to me up until a couple of weeks ago when I saw something that made me stop and think: Why am I doing this? I thought and it hit me: Family and loved ones. This made think back to my grandparents being there for my Wedding. I was fortunate enough to have them there, my grandmother was battling a brain tumor at the time, but she wanted to see her only grandson walk down the isle. Less than 2 years later I lost both my grand parents.

Now of those reading this post, please take care to not judge anyone who might be suffering from depression or anxiety. If you've never experienced it yourself, then you can know what it's like. This session was pretty as much  a therapy session for the both us and I must say it was nice to be able to step outside my boundaries of photography. It felt great to be able to help someone bring this to light and not have it hidden.

Jerrika

Recently I  did a photo session with a local model named Jerrika. Amazing model. She knows how to hit the poses and needs no direction. Easy to work with and her natural beauty shines thru. From what she explained to me is that this is her 1st shoot in 3 years or so. So it was nice to be able to get her back in front of a camera and she was happy to be back in front of the camera. So here for your viewing pleasure are some selections from the shoot.
