Third Challenge

Today I plan to do some headshots for an old friend. "Old" as in, "I have known the individual for awhile," and not "I have an ancient, wrinkled pal that wants me to take pictures of him." So, in order to catch up with photos, I'm sharing a sampling of my third photo challenge: the family portrait.

I was honored to photograph LuAnn and her family; she and I are former classmates. She has always supported my "taking of pictures," for which I am, and always will be, grateful. Indeed, she asked me last year to take pictures of her daughter, who was three months old at the time.

Her only instructions? "Make her look good."

"Okay," I said, my voice shaking a little. "As long as you and I both know that I have no idea what I'm doing."

... and I didn't. I still don't. I am simply honored that LuAnn has given me two opportunities to practice portrait photography. I can't thank her enough.

The, "But...but...but...Buuut MOOOoooOOOOm" face.


  1. My friend wants me to shoot her and her baby and I'm nervous because I worry babies will be difficult but you did a great job.

    I just realized I sounded like I'm going to kill my friend and her baby. That is not the case.
