Firsts of Spring

I met these little darlings earlier this year as part of a volunteer project. I joined the student photographers at College of Dupage for their 9th annual partnership project with Easter Seals. The title of this years show was "The Book of Firsts" and it showcased first events for the students of the school.
It was a truly rewarding experience and I wanted to thank my family, Mike and Lynne, for allowing me into their home and sharing their children with me.

Beautiful Dancer-Part One

This one took a bit to happen but we had a great time once we finally got together. The original date was the weekend we had torrential rain for 3 days. Not good, for more reasons than you can imagine. But, after my trip out west, we got lucky with the most beautiful day.

It is a 'Part One' because P. is a dancer and we did some really cool shots at the end of this session to show off her talent in a very artistic way.
I'm still working on some unique items with the dance shots and will share soon.

These however were taken at a great old building with beautiful fall color changing ivy.

I can totally see this on on an announcement of her Graduation
hello Gap? we have a new model!

California Girl

Well it certainly wasn't easy, but I picked a few fav's from this session out in CA. As a graduating senior she was excited to have her 'real' pictures taken. She was so much fun to work with and really up for anything. We did all these AFTER she sat with the family for those shots (see previous post). I think the only reason we stopped is because she had to go to a soccer game.

love this!!
Thanks K, I had a great time!
