Graduation Inspired Photography 2015

As a high school teacher, I am honored to be apart of our commencement ceremony each year. This year, I brought my camera and was able to capture some before and after pictures. I don't have a lot of pictures of students (you know release forms etc) or a lot of pictures in general because I was busy working, but I do like the few I got.

It took me like 5 tries to get that tassel in focus for this one,

I loved the speeches this year, So many laughs and great memories were shared. 

 Yearbook sentiments are sometimes silly or hard to write, but I hope they look back on them fondly.
 We had over 230 graduates this year. It is small by comparison to other schools I know. However, it takes a village to graduate a class, but it also takes a great leader!

 Some friendships will last a lifetime. Treasure your dearest friends. Make an effort to maintain the friendships that mean the most because during the years to come you find out who your true friends are.

My First Newborn Session

Attempting my first newborn session was a little intimidating and scary. Babies do not follow directions and they are needy. So armed with my patience, off I went to my friend's house to photograph her daughter in the comfort of their own home.

Here are a couple of my favorites. Well, a little more than a couple to be fair. 

Baby toes are the best. One of my favorite pictures of my daughter from her newborn session are her toes! 
 Look at those sweet, big, loving eyes!

 I think this one here is by far one of my favorites. Dads are so important to little girls.
Thank you "C' family for allowing me into your home to capture a small part of your journey into parenthood. May your love continue to grow and your nights be restful. Treasure the simple and significant moments you encounter as a new family. God Bless.
