Well, I finally finished editing through my second round of senior portraits. We got through the batches of proofs and finals and have a handful of portraits that I'm extremely happy with (and so is Nick, our studly feature)! Back in September, we were able to shoot at a variety of locations and try a few different ideas, concepts and set-ups. The session was great practice for me, and Nick did a wonderful job. We all had fun! He made it really easy for me to capture some stunning portraits. :)

With every photo shoot, I've really been learning something different. With Nick's, it was definitely in some of the lighting set-ups and also in the the post-processing workflow. I have shot 4 seniors so far and have really enjoyed each session. Each session has been extremely different from the next, each with different lessons learned. I'm starting to get into a rhythm though! My confidence is definitely growing, which is a very good thing. God has truly blessed us so far—couldn't have done anything without Him!
