I already shared with you my first attempts at portrait photography. As I previously stated, "I asked anyone from my hometown region if they would be interested in a miniature photo shoot. It was September, a gorgeous month, and I was in need of practice."
My cousin gracefully accepted the challenge, and I had a lot of fun photographing her. My second challenge, however, was a couple. They chose to visit the same places where I photographed my cousin but, as you can see, the end results are entirely different. They are goofy, as you can tell, and have been attached for more than four years. I enjoyed attempting to capture their personalities, their moments--ones of laughter and silliness, but also ones of raw tenderness and adoration.
In fact, as they stood next to each other, gripping each other's waists and staring into each other's eyes, I remember Cassy saying to Derrick, "I just can't look at you that long without hugging or kissing you."
