I know…you want to squeeze her, hate her for her beauty, sign her up for America’s Next Top Model, and elect her for president of the Hot Club all at the same time. This is my Hayley. Yep, MY Hayley. I’ve known her since a week after I moved to Michigan four and half years ago. And now, she is all grown up and a high school senior.
The truth is, there is more happiness, kindness, wisdom, and funness (I’m going to stop apologizing for my made up words) than I have ever seen in a girl this age. She is beyond special and has a beautiful soul to match her beautiful face.
The photography comfort zone, that is.
You know you are snuggled right between I-am-kind-of-finding-my-style-and-groove and ACK-I-need-to-improve-my-photography.
We’re all stuck there most of the time.
Try something new.
A new pose.
A new lighting scenario.
A new genre of subject or people that is out of your norm.
A new location.

Shooting at night has always intimidated me a bit. So, I forced myself to do it. And, it WAS forcing in the beginning. I learned one thing and made ten mistakes. Next time, I learned two things and made five mistakes. And so it goes. I am always learning, but I am finding that I LOVE shooting at night. So, I was thrilled when the beautiful Miss Natalie (high school senior) specifically requested some of her shoot take place at night.
Barbados has come and gone.
I am back to reality (almost).
And the reality of it is that I have a lot of images to share, words to say, and exciting things to announce.
Sooooo, you will be hearing from me a lot for the next while as I am going to blog daily to get caught up on all recent happenings :)
Hey, it’s John…that fun and awesome senior I photographed quite a while ago who is probably waiting super patiently to see his images. Had so much fun shooting with John…
