Boy howdy, folks, have I been busy lately! Between the end of the semester, defending my prospectus, and then traveling up North? Phew, I’m exhausted!
Before I left for Rhode Island, a conference at Yale, and then a quick visit to NYC, I photographed TJ & Ashley’s beautiful wedding.
And right when I got back, there was Jessica & Jeff’s stunning and sweet beach wedding.
Keep your eyes peeled for both of those weddings coming up over the next month.
Lately I’ve been doing some headshots. On the left we have Deb who wanted an updated headshot for her international job search. On the right we have Alea who needed a headshot for her SGA presidency at Bainbridge State College.
Next up is Nikki. Once upon this past fall, she was one of my photography students (and her son just finished my photo class this spring too). Things changed drastically this spring when her husband passed unexpectedly. It was especially difficult as she also worked to finish the semester. There were days and weeks when she had her doubts (though I never did), but she succeeded and graduated from Florida State University this May! I am tremendously proud of my friend’s accomplishments and her resilience! In one of these photos you’ll see her holding a framed image of her and her husband – it was important to her to have him by her side for this event since he had supported her through her education and over half her life.
Last up for today we have Jana! She just turned 22 and had a Kate Spade themed birthday dinner (lucky gal!). We couldn’t resist taking a fun portrait and headshot of the lass to celebrate the event!
So forgive me for being tremendously busy, my dear friends. I hope these photos make up for it a little. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to hop back to the dissertation process and work on putting together my summer art appreciation courses. 😀
What better way to enjoy your vacation than taking photos? My sisters were great sports and love Driftwood Beach! Next time, I’ll be sure to get there earlier and explore it further. The tide was coming in faster than we expected, but I hear tale of entire trees preserved on the beach. We started off with Alea since she’s a senior this year and mom needs as many photos of her last baby as she can get before she leaves for college. 😉
The photo below gives you some scope of just how big this driftwood is. Isn’t it lovely? And, yes, I was in the water with all my photo gear for a number of these photos. Now, that, my friends, is love!
Jana jumped in too for a little beach photo action. She’s a senior at Georgia Southern University (notice how her outfit shows off her school’s colors?). This chica just finished taking her MCAT on Thursday and we were celebrating!
After the photos and dinner, I walked down onto the hotel dock. I listened to the tide roll in and crash on the rocks while crickets chirped behind me. I looked up into the blanket of stars and saw one quickly shoot across. What amazing thing happened to you this weekend?
Do you know what I like? Adventures! It’s even more fun with you have a camera and a great subject. James called up asking for some headshots to boost his online presence. We had a fantastic time in Tallahassee at Black Dog Cafe, Lake Ella, and around Railroad Square. Doesn’t he have a wonderful smile?
Jana has had a ton of good news lately. She’s an exceptionally determined young lass and has been awarded a handful of scholarships to help with her college costs. One of them asked for a few portraits for their PR materials. I was happy to take her photos! What a smile!
Congrats on your recent success, Jana! Oh the places you’ll go!
Alea is a junior at Scholar’s in Thomasville and wanted fantastic prom photos to go with her fantastic dress. “Pretty much, I don’t want my prom photos to look like yours.” Gee thanks, kid. 😛
Wheeler was happy to come along for the big night out. I found a lovely & grand local plantation for the shoot. It was a ton of fun all around and I can’t wait ’til next years prom!
Don’t worry, they didn’t take the bike to prom – but we did borrow it for a few shots!
