I’ve been doing a lot of portraits lately – senior portraits and family portraits – and I still am kind of surprised when I’m asked to do it. Honored and humbled and more than a little nervous. Then I see something like this has come out of a camera that I was holding and setting up, and I know that I was responsible for the fill light and reflector, and most importantly have the responsibility of making my model relaxed and having an enjoyable time. It just makes me grateful that I was invited to be a part of someone’s memories.
Never, ever take this job for granted.
