Well I must say I had a great weekend...Had a full weekend of photo shoots but still managed to spend time with my boys at home....always a plus!
My Friday started off with shooting the Future Youth Bulls Award Ceremony which was the jump start to the "Celebration of Life" weekend in honor of the late NFL Player Derrick Thomas of the Kansas City Chiefs.
The kids were so excited receiving their awards! I can't wait to get JR and AJ registered to start playing sports!
Saturday I did a shoot of a beautiful little girl named KeKe...she was a bit camera shy but her photos still came out amazing!
Isn't she super cute!!
You know I always try to have fun on my shoots!
Anywho, today (Sunday) I had a shoot with the gorgeous ladies of FCPI...First Class Productions, Inc.
It is always a pleasure to work with this group of ladies..Its nothing but a good time shooting them! They definitely remind me of family!
If you are looking for first class service for any event planning or staffing make sure you contact First Class Productions, Inc.
Yesterday I conducted a shoot for Author Candra Ward who's book entitled "In My Mind"
will be coming out in the near future.
For the worse day I've had for a shoot the day couldn't have turned out better because we got the shots she was looking to portray in her book.
I get to the shoot location to start...I'm setting up and
My flash drops off of my hotshoe flash clip...and no longer flashes.
And we all know as photographers...we must HAVE LIGHT!
First I want to give a shout out to
They are totally awesome and their insurance plan is amazing!
Secondly I want to give a shout out to
for ALWAYS making sure I purchase additional insurance on my equipment!
I love that man!
So I head over to Best Buy and they say Oh yeah we will go ahead and just replace it for you!
How awesome is that!
Oooooooooo but we no longer sale that specific flash that you have...
OMG! ARE YOU KIDDING!
Even though it took forever to get this taken care of...best buy customer service took care of me and replaced my flash with an UPGRADED SB flash..
Ok..so anywho enough about my stressful flash interruption...
Candra did an amazing job for her first time doing the shoot! She swears she needs lessons but she doesn't!
I wanted her to be natural in most of her photos to show her readers who she really is..and I definitely think she did a great job in getting that description across.
She is a very elegant, soft, strong-minded woman and I truly am grateful that I was able to not only meet her but to work with her!
One thing that I absolutely LOVE about her is that she is so down-to-earth and loves life and has fun just like anyone of us! Here is one of her being silly taking a photo.
:) Love it!
Being silly in front of the camera brings comfort in being in front of the camera..And comfort in front of the camera brings amazing shots!
Anyone that has worked with me knows that I love to create a comfortable atmosphere and make sure that the day is fun on my shoots. I always try to capture candids just to add a little photojournalism about my day with a client.
