This past weekend I had the blessing of taking Brandon's senior pictures. Brandon is dear to our hearts and he hadn't taken any senior portraits. I offered to take some photos for him as my graduation gift to him.
He was a good sport~I took 137 pictures in an hour. Don't worry! I'm only posting a few of my faves. He started off in his football jersey on the high school football field:
And then I encouraged him to take a few pictures in the stands where his parents sat at every home football game:
He changed into a different shirt and we found a few spots in town to capture some random shots.
I like this picture of Brandon not only because it shows where he came from but also that his future is wide open and filled with choices:
I had fun applying a few fun photoshop effects to this photo:
Brandon started relaxing a bit when I reminded him of all of the times in class where he begged me to go to the locker room early. My answer was always "no" until one day.
It was after a big football win, and after he had finished his computer assignment, that he looked at me and asked once again to go to the locker room early. I told him sure but only if he won a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors...and to both of our surprises he won!
In this picture it looks like he is contemplating his future...dream big dreams for your life, Brandon, your Heavenly Father is.
We took a few pictures in front of a pond too:
and then at the railroad crossing:
It was a fun day! I am going to be taking another senior's portraits this week. Mr. Incredible smiled and said, "Are you getting paid to do this one?" to which I replied, "No" because it is my gift to these two seniors. And he just shook his head and smiled.
Here is where my question to you comes in!
I am kind of thinking... about possibly trying a little part time photography business...but I'm not sure. It sounds funny even saying it out loud~hello insecurity!~and especially writing it on my blog. What do you think?...honestly....I can take it...I think! Okay, I can take it...tell me what you think, please! You can leave me a comment or send me an email which is firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for your help in the matter. I love you more than my new shoes!
