My close friend Lauryn came to me seeking an updated headshot. Lauryn is a multi talented individual and I will be featuring her in my portrait/interview series in the future!
Shooting friends is always a lot of fun and easy because there is a level of comfort between the two of you that has already been established. This leads to a more relaxed environment and a relaxed subject. When working with someone I don't know as well, it does take a little time to get to know each other but I strive to make it feel like we are old friends hanging out and just happen to be making photos together.
I love getting to know individuals and what they are passionate about. Being able to connect with another person is one of the greatest joys in my life and then capturing them in a moment that will never be exactly the same again is just an amazing feeling.
I can't wait to have more moments with the friends I have now and the friends I have yet to meet.
Until next time. Take it easy.
