I've been so busy lately that I honestly have been avoiding writing blogs. I didn't want it to be a tiresome text with some pictures that no one would read. I thought I will eventually get to point when I will write some amazing copy followed by mind blowing portraits and everyone will be in love! Well I definitely have some amazing photos to share, so let's hope I can keep the story up to par!
Adrianna and I go way back, we met around the time that both PCS'ed to Germany and for a long time it was random meetings in a dog park or at our mutual friends' house. And then one day I get a message asking me to do her in-home session. Back then I just lost my camera to the fountain incident so I couldn't do what she wanted me to do but I did come over to do a more in depth consult and see what specifically she had in mind. After a few hours had gone by I realized we no longer talked about her session but how I got into photography and what I do during my session, how I shoot, and so on. I can't remember the last time I was this excited to share my knowledge so I think we both just lost track of time. Almost a year later I found out that It was that visit that inspired Adrianna, and while she has already been shooting before, she now knew exactly how and what she wanted. It was this meeting, more than a year ago, that changed something inside of me, and I realized how amazing it is not just to learn, but also to share what I learn. I am no where near having enough knowledge to actually educate, but a big part of me is now even more driven, more sharing, and hopeful that I maybe I can inspire or pass on the little that I do know. And while I keep thinking up ways to do so ( and dreaming of my own shooting workshop), here are a few of my favorite images from Adrianna's graduation shoot.
